Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

i just got through w/ a ton of reinstallation issues w/ xp, now that i got it
goin ok, i went to update to sp2. after it restarted i got an error saying
something about explorer.exe is missing or corrupt. the only way i could get
online and type this was to ctrl-alt-del and go to start new task. that is
the only way i can get into programs, otherwise everthing works fine.
