I need my updates!
Why is this happening!
try this, type or copy paste this into the run command
It says help and support is not running but it is
Weird ,really Weird
yeah i also keep getting crap about local security policy which is wierd as im running xp home ?
ill try and run SFC, then maybe a repair install, i think something screwed up my windows dir (i now have a windows and a winnt dir????)
We look forward to your HJT log if the repair doesn't work.
aha, SFC sort of fixed it + repair install totally fixed it.
It would appear that something changed my environment variables/registry to say that i was windows 2000 datacenter server.
i confirmed that as doing about under a ms app like solitare said that i was running NT5.0 (windoes 2000) instead of 5.1 (xp) - i tried checking the system box in control panel but that just crashed my pc
everything seems to be worrking fine now after repair install
