If the computer says regsrv32 is missing.. what do i do? it wont allow certain programs to run or updates to work because that file is missing.  would i have to recover the whole system? is it a virus? can the file be copied from somewhere without redoing the entire system?

You should be able to find that program on your XP CDROM under the i386 folder. Alternatively, unpack the latest service pack you were using in a temp. directory and look for that application there. If you find it and it is called 'regsvr32.ex_', you need to use the command line tool 'expand.exe' to decompress it.

Here you go I uploaded regsrv32.exe and regsrv32.dll for you to the following link.

www.sfukgamers.co.uk/files.rar

I have included the exe and the dll as I am not sure which ones you have missing.  When you download these files extract them to the c:\windows\System32 folder

No need to extract from the CD.  I have zipped these files up using winrar, unless your not familiar with the rar format. It is similar to zip but done in Winrar ;)  http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

Good luck to you, now I am off on holiday :)

You are aware that it is *cough* not quite legal to do that?
