Windows File Protection

by Wolfgamezzz / September 15, 2007 12:33 AM PDT

Ok, I was running Disk Cleanup, when this Windows File Protection comes up saying a system file has been replaced with a unrecognized one. It wants me to put in my OS CD, but I don't have one! I bought this computer and the required files are already on the computer. So what should I do?


I am running Windows XP MCE.

Preinstalled OS's offer a chance to make such.
