Doesn't go with it. Given you don't have a real XP CD your repairs are not so certain. You can try WINSOCKFIX as well as running SFC /SCANNOW (use google if you don't know how.)
But a recurring problem with such systems is that OS repairs are often not possible due to the way the OEMs repackage the OS.
