Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Defragment does not work

Hi, I have window XP pro version 2002 service pack 2, Dell 8400

I got a little computer problem.

I lost defrag in my start, all program, accessories, system tools, defrag.

Also lost it in start, my computer, right click local disk (c:), property, tools defrag.

When I click on the defrag in either area this is what I get in a pop up blue box..

Microsoft Management Console

MMC cannot open the file c:windowssystem32dfrg.msc.
This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console,
or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be
because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file.

But if I go to
Start
Run
type in, Compmgmt.msc
Then click on, Disk Defragmenter

Then it'll run this way. My question is, how in the heck can I get itback and recognized in those first two areas that I mentioned? It hasalways worked in there, and I haven't a clue as to why it is no longerbeing recognized. Can you help me out????

Hi,

This problem can be tacked in a few ways. But I cannot guarantee that it can solve the problem. So please do try out all the alternatives shown below one at a time.

  • Go to Start and then Run, type regsvr32 msxml3.dll and run it, or
  • Start --> Run, regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll and start - Run, regsvr32 dfrgui.dll and then click on OK, or
  • Go to Start - Run and then type sfc /scannow. (If it asks for the installation CD, insert it) or
  • Install the latest MMC 3.0 (Available at Microsoft site) or
  • Browse to C:\Windows\Inf (Assuming C drive is your OS drive), right click dfrg.inf file and click on Install.
If the above does not solve your problem still, then try renaming the dfrg.msc file to something else and place the shortcut in your start menu.

If everything fails, it can only be a registry or a .MSC association problem...

I need to reinstall windows xp home edition i have the product code but no disk


I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck

Windows xp home edition service pack 2


Legally, well purchase the software. But if you do that I wouldn't buy Xp Home Edition I would go with XP Pro.

On the other end of things check piratebay.com or other torrent sites. You may be able to find just the product key or a version where you do not need one or that comes cracked.

Hope that helps.
