Hello there, I am called Xyzyxx. Pronounce my name (zī’ zĭks)
Every so often my computer gives me this alert message when I start it up:
Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore the original versions of these files.
Insert your Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM now.
[Retry] [More Information] [Cancel]
And when I click "More Information" it gives me this:
Possible reasons for this problem:
-You have inserted the wrong CD. (i.e., a different Windows product CD than the version installed)
-The CD-ROM drive in your system is not functioning.
So then I insert the CD-ROM into the drive. The alert message goes away automatically, and the Autorun for the CD-ROM starts up.
Welcome to Microsoft Windows XP
What do you want to do?
+Install Windows XP
+Install optional Windows components
+Perform additional tasks
+Check system compatibility
So then I looked over the options and none of them seem to match the problem Windows was complaining about. So I clicked Exit. So then I take out the CD and put it away again and my computer works fine. But then later the message will come up again.
I should also mention that if I click Cancel at that first message, it will ask me something to the effect of "you have chosen to keep the unrecognized versions. Windows may not run properly, are you sure you want to do that? and I say "OK" and the computer works fine, but the message will return later.
