Have a HP Pavillion A620n that had a hard crash. Used the backup copies to reinstall all the software. Things worked well until it came to the Windows XP Home screen then a rectangle window came up saying that the Windows Config.exe was missing or corrupt and to try setup again. did this with the same results. Is there anyway to get the missing windows xp config exe so the backup copies will work?
The problem is not with windows xp installation , just install updated antivirus and scan through.
Your system is infected.Go to start Click on run then type msconfig and press enter
Now in "System Configuration Utility" click on Startup option,and uncheck on the config.exe option.

if it was running for more than 30 hours, it wasn't doing much. You can try copying hal.dll off of a known, good-working XP pc, and replace it with the one on your broken PC. It's better if you extract it from i386 folder but grabbing it from another pc should work fine.
The CreateACard Gold 3 (CAC Gold 3) will never work with Windows 7 64bit unassumingly because the software producing company has not upgraded their software for even Vista 64bit. I recommend you to switch to " Hallmark Card Studio Special Edition" it has all the features of CAC Gold 3. You will enjoy it as there should be no problem installing it with Windows 7 64bit.

If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.
Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.
Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.
