Please try this workaround (you will need your Windows® XP SP2 CD).

(In the event that you do not have a Windows® XP CD with SP2, you will need to 'borrow' one from a friend or colleague, as the manufacturer's "Recovery Discs" will not work in this instance.)

Insert the Windows® XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow …please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows® core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully). :grin:

Please post back with the result, or if there are any further queries/concerns.

Kind Regards,

The retry was replacing the 'missing' files...that is normal.

Once it finishes, the sfc pane just closes; thats when the computer needs rebooting!

Please try the sfc /scannow again and post back with the results.

Hello again patelz,

This is very interesting indeed..

There are a number of possibilities that could be causing this error.
We need you to re-create the 'error'; click the link that says... "Click Here"; then post a screenshot of the error message code, so that we can determine the correct solution for this issue.

Kind Regards,

Thanks for that Patelz,
Lets try this...
Press alt+ctrl+del.
Start the Task Manager > Processes > explorer.exe > End Process.
Close the error messages on your screen; while you are still in the Task Manager; Go File > New Task > type in > iexplore > enter.

Now, please download the latest xviD Codec from here. (Click the coloured link.)

Post back with the results.

Kind Regards,
