Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I ran a program called search and destroy and it deleted a bunch of files.
These are some of the files, but there are more.
svchost.exe 0x00e84651 userinit.exe winlogon.exe LEXPPS.EXE logonui.exe
How can I restore these files?
WoW, stay away from that program, which was it?
To correct this, you can do one of two things:
first, can you get to you desktop ok? And do you have you XP cd handy? (if you cannot get to your desktop, start with the second thing)
If the answer is yes to both questions, put your XP cd into the CDROM, then go to start >run> type in sfc /scannow in the run box. This will attempt to fix and replace the missing files.
Second thing, if the above does not work do the following:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just re-installs the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
