Windows File Protection

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 1.659 GHz / 1023 MB
A couple of weeks ago I was having some weird problems when I went online, where it would give a message that IE had made an error and was shutting down. I kept getting the message and decided to run SFP /SCANNOW. It never completed, but hung up. So, I decided it was time to run a Repair install, something I do about once a year. After running it, the system was still screwy so the next day I ran it again with better results. But, now, every time I boot my system up, I get the little box telling me that the system has to run SFP and I may need to insert the CD-ROM. Sometimes it asks's for the original XP CD (which includes SP2) and sometimes it asks for the Service Pack 2 disk. I have inserted these when asked to, but it doesn't matter. The very next time I boot up it ask's again. I have reinstalled the SP2 disk and even Windows Automatic Update has installed it, but I STILL get this message. I have run MSCONFIG and looked for something that would start this process, with no luck. My question: How can I turn this Windows File Protection process off? Or, at least, end this constant re-running of it?

Thanks for any help.

A positive attitude won't solve all your problems, but it will annoy just enough people to be worth the effort.

You might want to try using the system file checker after using file protection. Similar but type in sfc /scannow.

I did re-run the SFC /SCANNOW and it completed. But, the very next time I booted up, I got the same message! It just won't quit. It's driving me insane. I use the Task Manager and I can eventually get it to stop, but that's aggravating, too. What did I do to cause it and what can I do to stop it? There is nothing wrong with my system. At least, so far as I know...
