When I done a boot time scan of my pc with avast antivirus it showed me that some files are corrupted. how should i fix that because i have win xp sp2 cd only and i have upgraded to win xp sp3 by downloading patch from microsoft website.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it shouldn't matter what SP you have, because if you repair your installation when your computer is back connected to the internet, it will just update the files again.
Boot to your XP CD and press 'R' when you get to the menu. Select the drive you want to repair and if you don't have a password on your hard drive just press enter when it asks. Type 'chkdsk /r' without the ' ' and press enter. Run this process until it doesn't find and fix any errors. (This process can take some time)
