SFC /SCANNOW - WINDOWS FILES PROTECTION

Postby rocasan » Tue Feb 02, 2010 9:09 pm

Windows XP Home SP3
===============

In December 2009 I did a "clean install" using CD #3 from Dell.

Because I was having problems with My Music (Icould not play any of the
songs) I decided to run SFC /SCANNOW and getting the following messages:

"WINDOWS FILES PROTECTION
Files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the
DLL cache.
Insert your Windows XP Home SP 3 now".

I inserted Dell CD #3.

And again I got another message:

"WINDOWS FILE PROTECTION
The CD you provided is the wrong CD. Please insert the Windows XP Home SP3
CD into your CD-ROM drive"

And again I for the same messages listed above.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had received from Dell, at different times, 3 CDs:

#1.-Operating System.-Reinstallation CD.-Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
including Service Pack 1

#2.-Operating System.-Already installed on your computer.-Microsoft XP Home
Edition Service Pack 2

#3.-Operating System.-Already installed on your computer.-Microsoft XP Home
Edition Service Pack 3 for Ultra Low Cost Pcs.

As I mentioned at the beginning, CD #3 was used for "clean install".

Please let me know what should I do to correct the problems.

Thank you.

Thank you for your information.

I believe you are suggesting that I perform another "clean install". Am I
right?

If that is the case, could you tell me how to perform a "complete clean
install"?

The reason I am asking you is that I have performed 2 "clean installs"
during the last 4 years and I have found duplicate folders and files in the
system.

Please let me know how to perform a "complete clean install".

Thank you once again.

But OP said he/she had:

It sounds like #3 is a full installation CD to me (at the SP3 level). OP
should confirm.

BTW, this is a photo of the Dell XP Pro installation CD (at SP3 level):

I am pretty sure that the only Dell XP Home installation CDs (at SP3
level) are indeed the ones that accompany netbooks (AKA "ultra low cost
PCs).

To OP:

*If* you must perform a Clean Install, you might as well mike your life
easier and use Disk #3 (assuming it is what I think it is).

YW.

Just make sure that you *really* perform a Clean Install. :-)

From your other post, it looked like you had performed a few parallel
installs, which are not the same thing. Basically, you need to delete
*all* the partitions (make sure your data is all backed up!!!), create a
new partition and format it, and *then* install XP. I believe this guide
was posted earlier:

Good luck!
