Windows XP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

My system shows I am missing some files, how can I replace them?
If you are missing files of a Windows component, then you can run the System File Checker. Windows File Protection only monitors and maintains XP system components. If it is a 3rd party application, you may need to reinstall that application to restore the missing files.

Method #1:

To run Windows System File Checker:

Go to Start>> Run, type in: sfc /scannow  [Enter]

Windows may require you to insert your XP CD. 

Method #2:

You can also use System Restore to recover your system back to date before the files were missing. To activate System Restore:

Go to Start>> All Programs>> Accessories>> System Tools>> System Restore.
