Hi, A couple of weeks ago I (legally!) installed xp on a computer but it could not install several files. I tried again but the same files kept not installing so I skipped them and xp works. Sort of. There are now loads of niggling problems with the computer which I presume come from the 40 or so mostly .dll files that did not install. There are also a few .sys, .exe and a .icm file. Luckily I kept as list of them. My problems include no standby function, display adapters not recognized, active x not working in places, wmi failure and various crashes and things. I'm working on the assumption that installing these files will fix the problems but I have some questions: 1. Do these problems sound like ones caused by non installation of files on xp setup and if so why did they not install twice? 2. Can I just install these to make my pc work-if so where do I install them? 3. If not what do I do?-do I use repair on my xp cd? I'll post the list of files below. Thanks in advance guys. Techspot forums have been my saviour before and I hope they can be again!
