XP Firewall unavailable.

Recommended Posts

I dont use Zone Alarm.

I believe I need to reinstall the whole SP2 patch to get the new Windows Firewall.

I was also wondering if I should run my Windows CD .

I forgot the command in "Run" to check for corrupted files.

Can you tell me the command?

Sorry about getting off the subject a bit.

Do you think reinstalling SP2 would make me lose some files?

Do you mean "SFC /scannow"?

I don't have experience with re-installing XP SP2 but I would venture to guess that the impact on your system should be minimal since you were already running it and are attempting to correct a potential misconfiguration of it.

Yes,SFC /scannow.

Thank you.

I have loaded so many freeware and shareware program and unloaded so many that I think I need to do the scan.

It might help.

Sorry about this thread getting so long over such a minimal problem.

I hope maintenance will solve it and a reintall of SP2.

You may also consider a fresh install of your OS. It sounds like you've put it through quite a bit of punishment and Windows tends to degrade under such circumstances.
