Due to Windows Update website changes, it was required that I download/install new active-X controls before installing a high priority update. The update installed successfully, but I am left with a Windows File Protection notice as follows: "Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore the original versions of these files.......please insert Windows XP CD.......".
Since I have installed the new WU active-X on two other computers and did not receive any Windows Protection notification, I am wondering why I received one or if it has anything to do with my January reformat using my Dell XP reinstallation CD.
Is it O.K. to do as I am told and follow the Windows File Protection instructions and let the CD do its thing?
