I was trying to re-install windows xp and it didn't complete. I want to reformat my harddrive and cannot do so because windows setup application temporary files are still in use somewhere and I'm not allowed to delete everything off of my c:\NTFS partition. How do I get rid of these files so I can wipe the slate clean? I have Generic Host Process win32 errors and svchost.exe errors that are haunting me. I have tried everything out on the interenet suggest to remove the errors but nothing works. HELP!!!!
Hi, if I re-install Windows will I lose the files that I have saved to my laptop?
I have no Windows XP CD and the jerk who built my PC did not image the I386 on my hard drive. All I want to do is change a system configuration option, but when I try to do this from Control Panel I get prompted to insert CD/give path which I don't have at all. This is a pc with Windows XP Pro. I do have another CD with Windows XP Home from a different PC. Can I borrow this one or will the Home/Professional difference nix this?
I'm in the same position as everyone else here. I can't even install the Recovery Console, for F's sake!!!
Is there noplace you can BUY a stupid Installation CD for your system somewhere??? Sheesh!!!
I have found i386 folder in C:\windows incase it helps anyone.
i have lost my windows xp detup disk and i want to format my laptop (which already has win xp sp3 on it) then reinstall win xp to speed it up a bit
i dont have the i386 folder on this laptop either so i cant get the installation files
Hello, I hope you can help me! I bought a laptop for my b-day, it was used with new hard drive and with xp windows. Now microsoft is telling me that my windows is not legal, after 7 mos. of owning it. My computer has a product key for windows and say's it's right but microsoft say's not. So now I am to buy a new xp windows cd and re-install windows and loose every thing on my computer that I installed. I thought that you can only put xp on once, how is this legal for people who is just making it by, I am a mother of two and single and on a budget that I can't go and spend 150.00 so I can use my computer. Is there anything I can do? Thank you Diane
I want to upgrade my pc from windows me to windows xp. Is it anywhere I can download the xp setup disk?
my computer says low disk space. I do not know what to remove. I have tried removing old security updates but it also says that removing them may cause the computer to stop working. What do I remove safely? Thanks
