thanks for your reply, but after my cd roms went missing I now get this
OLEAUT.32DLL IS OUT OF DATE, AND WHEN I DOWLOADED THE FILE HERE THAT
YOU GAVE ME IT WILL NOT LET ME OPEN IT--AND IT SAYS THAT THE
OLEAUT.32DLL IS OUT OF DATE I ALSO HAD DOWNLOADED THIS FILE TO NO
AVAILE. CAN I RESTORE MY XP DRIVES ONLY?? I KNOW I CAN RESTORE MY XP
FILES ONLY--WITHOUT DOING A WHOLE SYSTEM RESTORE. PLEASE CAN YOU HELP
ME ON THAT, BECUASE I AM THINKING I WILL HAVE TO RESTORE THE FILES AT
LEAST, BUT IF I CAN DO THE DRIVERS TOO WOULD LOVE TO DO THAT, BUT DO
NOT WANT TO DO AN ENTIRE SYSTEM RESTORE, UNLESS THAT WAS MY ONLY HOPE.
THANKS, TAMIE.
