✔ Best Answer
UBCD4win can't fix an install's registry.. Borrow someone's xp cd and use the repair feature.

In either case the xp cd will repair to the level it has on the cd. One can update later.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

If you have a legal product key but "lost" your disc, there's nothing illegal about downloading a copy of XP thru the torrents & using it to do a repair or a fresh install. And you should be able to find a copy that already has SP3 integrated into it.
