Will i need to back up my files and programs just like i would if i were doing a reinstall? I adding the Windows XP components back have fixed it, it hasn't froze up yet today. I would still like to try and download the rest of those components they looked pretty important. Some of the ones i need to add back were stuff like Management and Monitoring Tools and Networking Services. Do you think when it froze up while i was trying to add the components back could have corrupted something?
