Repairing Installation Using Service Pack

The Service pack 2 for XP has a built-in Windows Firewall and Security Center. Corrupted files and system instability may prompt you to repair your installation. If you installed Windows XP with a service pack installation disk prior to SP2, you have to create a merged installation disk or slipstreamed installation disk. Else, you will get an error message when you try to repair Windows, or you will be reverted to the XP version on the installation disk. If so, you have to reinstall SP2 all over again.

Instructions to Uninstall Internet Explorer 7 or 8
  • Click on Start, then select the Control Panel option. In the left column of the Control Panel window, select the Classic View.
  • Double click on Add/Remove Programs.
  • Here you can see a list of all installed programs. Locate Internet Explorer 7 or Internet Explorer 8, and click it. Now, click on the Remove button.
  • A prompt will appear for removing Internet Explorer. Follow the simple instructions in the prompts to remove Internet Explorer.
Instructions to Repair Installation
  • Now get your Windows XP Service Pack installation disk, and insert it into the disk drive. Restart your computer immediately.
  • By pressing the right keys navigate to your system BIOS. Typically, computers present a message: Press X to Access BIOS Setup, immediately after the computer has restarted. Press the necessary keys as prompted. If you do not see this message and are unaware of how to access your system BIOS, consult the motherboard or computer manual.
  • Access the Advanced Boot Options and select the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive as the first boot device. Select the hard disk as the second boot device. Save the settings and exit the BIOS screen.
  • Press any key to boot from CD. Then press Enter.
  • Press F8 to accept the terms of the licensing agreement, and then press R to begin repair installation.
  • Follow the onscreen prompts, and finish the repair process. Now run the Windows Update, and reinstall Internet Explorer, and any other software.
If you are having trouble with this procedure then you can access Windows tech support to give you a systematic technical assistance to resolve the issues. Windows tech support offers very good customer service, and are dedicated to finding quick and reliable solutions for your issues. If Microsoft releases a new Service Pack for XP, you should get it, and install it. The newer service packs arm your XP against the new security threats, and improves system performance.
