I would just do a clean install if I was you. Just put in the XP disk and install as if it were a new system. If you have files on your system that you want to keep just save them to a DVD or CD to avoid any issues with upgrading.

How to fix error 48 in itunes


The message does not indicate that there is an issue with the iPod but that that iTunes was unable to read the iPod software update it uses to restore or update your iPod.

Here are the steps to take if you get this message:

Eject iPod and quit iTunes.

Windows to verify there are no other issues on your hard drive.
Locate the iPod Software Updates folder:

In Mac OS X, the folder is
/Users/username/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates

In Windows Vista, the folder is
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

In Windows XP and Windows 2000, the folder is
C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

Note: If you don't see the files in Windows, turn on the Show hidden files option.

My Dell Dimension 3000 was infected with malware and would not boot up. I reloaded Windows XP from scratch and lost all of my drivers. If I down load drivers, which file folder should they be copied to? ...


When you download drivers, they usually come as compressed files. Windows has a built in program to extract them. Right click on the downloaded compressed file and choose extract here. Double click on the file if it is an .exe file. If they are .dll files, you need to find the device that needs the driver in your device manager, choose install or update driver, and browse to the place that you downloaded the file to.
If when you reboot, it pops up a message about finding new hardware, and prompts you to install a driver, browse to the place you downloaded the driver to
