Corrupt or missing file error messages

by smponz / January 21, 2006 3:37 AM PST

I was using the Disk Cleanup tool and ventured into the Windows Components. Apparently I have deleted most of my Cursor files. I went into change the features for the cursor and after selecting "pointer" tab I have numerous error messsages pop up one at a time. How do I restore or find these files? Is there a tool that will automatically do this(yes I'm dreaming but had to ask)?

System info:

XPPro SP2, XP came on the NB and I installed SP2 with a update disk from MS. I use Windows update on a regular schedule so everything should be up to date.

I did some searching regarding this issue and came across SFC/scannow but the instructions all seem pretty vague to me.

Give yourself a big "Air Hug" from me. I unzipped the cursor file and I'm happy. This was by far the easiest and fasted fix that I have found.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
