WFP needs CD of SP3 Home XP 32 bit

by cinnamonstick / August 20, 2010 12:38 PM PDT

hey, can anyone please tell me what to do?

Whilst attempting to upgrade Ad-Aware I clicked that button and was taken to Cnet. On clicking download a window advised that I needed Hebrew language to make the thing work. There was no option so I thought it must be part of the new version Ad-Aware but immediately I had accepted it, Windows File Protection said " files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognised versions" etc Insert Windows XP Home Edition SP3 CD.

Since SP3 was installed as an upgrade, I don't have that CD and the one that came with my computer, SP1 is not acceptable.

Would System Restore mend this problem? I made a new restoration point this month. My last backup disc was 18 long mths ago. I don't know how to make a CD of SP3 so what's the easiest way of sorting this out. BTW, my pc hasn't been restarted.

Thank you so much to anyone sparing the time to reply. Please keep it very simple; I'm useless with computers........obviously !!

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?
