I have a Dell Deminsion E310 running windows XP. Shortly after starting up computer a dialog box with the heading "Windows File Protection" appears. The verbage in the dialog box "Files that are required for windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions.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 thse files. Insert your windows XP Professional CD2 now." The choices are "retry" "more information" "cancel" >>>>I do not have the Windows CD, I cannot restore to an earlier version. What eventually happens is that all programs lock up and I need to reboot the computer. I've run SFC to verify, I've run MRT in safe mode, same problem. I've run a full scan two or three times with Mcafee and nothing out of the ordinary can be detected.
I've checked the event log, which I find is corrupted but I am able to see two issues...
"The protected system file c:\windows\ehome\ehtray.exe could not be verified as valid because Windows File Protection is terminating."
"The protected system file c:\windows\resources\themes\luna\luna.msstyles could not be verified as valid because Windows File Protection is terminating."
I appreciate any assistance you can offer.
