Hello fellow support members, I am trying to run my system file checker and my reinstasllation cd is coming up as outdated. I was told by a tech support professional that when this happened I could simply enter the location of my i386 file in my partitioned master file. My computer does not grant me the option to enter any other information. Please understand, I am comuter challenged and know very little. Perhaps there is a command that I can enter when I try to run my SFC. All of your advice and help will be greatly appreciated.

You need a slipstream XP OS CD w/ your system's current Service Pack, which is hopefully SP3 -

Support for XP SP2 ends on July 13, 2010 --> https://support.microsoft.com/gp/windowsxpsp2
