Terrible Catch-22 after Repair Installation of XP I had an annoying 'Missing DLL" warning after every startup, so I decided to try a repair install. The repair install went as normal (including the several screens where it says it cannot find such-and-such files). After the repair, I find that IE7 is no longer on the system. Wonderful. I need IE to do the updates, especially SP2. So I go download IE7. It won't install because I don't have SP2. I don't have SP2 becasue I can't get IE7. I try to download SP2 with Opera and Firefox. Cannot be done. Must use IE. I download IE6 and install it. It will not run. I cannot update to SP2 without IE7, yet cannot install IE7 without SP2. Forget it, I say, I'll do a System Restore. Go to do that and find the repair installation has deleted all my restore points. What can I do now?
