I bet that's a typo, but we do expect such this century but not in Windows XP.
As to MSINFO, that's a proper message if some services were disabled. Read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323209
I hope you are aware that many trojans and worms will have free entry and reign over a fresh install of XP. Since it's not XP SP2 I see instance infections since the owner installs XP, then connects to the internet to update and the worm walks in since they didn't install the firewall before connecting to the internet.

I just finished a clean re-installation of my OP system and finally got security/updates up to date. I went to defrag and can't get it to work. I have tried the forum suggestions of trying in safe mode, but that doesn't work. I have also checked the registry to make sure defrag is enabled, it is.
My system information also doesn't work. It says: "Can't collect information" "A network error occured connecting to Windows Management Instrumentation. Ensure that your network connection is functioning properly".
I have fiddled with services but WMI is enabled and started, and my network connection is working fine or I wouldn't be online.
Is there any other services that I may have disabled or turned to manual that may be preventing me from either of these tasks?
Any other suggestions/guidance would be muchly appreciated!
