The fix asks to insert windows xp pro sp2 cd which I do not have. When I insert my xp ME cd, it says it's the wrong one. In the end, the fix give an "accepted" comfirmation but I still can't click the links in emails and sometimes from the start menu, favorites don't work. Although the favorites in the browser always work.
I dunno.
