Run System File Checker ….

Start > Run > sfc /scannow – note the space and have your XP CD handy. 

SFC will run and exit without any closing dialog.

To see which files, if any, have been replaced look in Event Viewer.

If you want to use or run the Windows registry editor or regedit, please remember that you can only use it if you have an administrator account. Limited or non-admin accounts are not allowed to use the program to edit the Windows registry. If you are using a non-admin account, shift to another user account with administrative privileges so you can use the registry editor freely.

If you don’t have an administrator account, you cannot use the registry editor. “regedit” or the Windows Registry Editor is a graphical tool in Microsoft Windows that allows authorized users to view the Windows registry and make changes. Note: only advanced users should work with the Windows registry editor and admins should always create a backup of the registry before making some changes.

If you made an incorrect modification, the computer’s operating system may stop functioning. The good thing is that, the Windows registry rarely needs editing. But sometimes there are problems where administrators have to make adjustments to the registry to be able to import or export .reg files or delete, create, or make changes to corrupt registry keys and subkeys.
