  1. Well I created a custom Windows XP CD with nlite but removed a certain component to which I actually require now :( - I need windows telephony service to have my 3 Mobile Wireless USB dongle to work. It is a Huawei E220 and I need windows telephony for it to work correctly. Can someone provide a way on how to reinstall Windows Telephony service, without reinstalling the entire system and using a windows xp disc?

    The Windows Telephony Service can be found in the Administrative Tools:

    To open the full section:
    Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Services

    To go directly to Services:
    Start> Run> services.msc> Telephony

    Right click on Telephony> Properties> make sure the Startup type is set to Automatic or Manual.

    NOTE: the Dependencies for Telephony are the Plug and Play Service and Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

    Sorry, but did you even read what I wrote?

    I removed telephony service that I require now for Wireless Internet from my mobile provider but had removed Telephony service when I created a custom windows XP disc with nLite and I need to know how to reinstall Telephony service somehow.

    Only way is Windows Repair
    Or Start->Run-> sfc /scannow
    (that one preferred)

    Both require the Windows CD (don't bother letting me know, that you said you didn't want to use this)

    Yes, I read it. You said:
    So what did you create the custom CD from? Don't come down on me because you removed something that was vital! I told you where the Services was on the system. Kimsland told you what to do to get it loaded back.

    Maybe you can piece it together!
