Dear johnb6767:
I did as directed but it was asking me for a xp pro sp2 cd.  I don't have that cd because I got my pc from a store where in they don't give you cd anymore but you have to create your own recovery cd or dvd only.  Please help!!!

Do you have the i386 directory on your system? Or, you could burn them to a CDR, or a thumb drive perhaps, as long as you might know someone with an MCE, the same version as yours.....

Dear johnb6767:

I copied a I386 from another computer and re-install the mdac.inf and now it is asking me for the Windows XP Professional cd.  Like I said I don't have that cd because this computer was bought from a store and hp does not give you anymore cd,you have to burn a recovery disc instead of cd.  Please help!!!

johnb6767Commented:
It should prompt you for a location to find those files, with a browse button....Browsing to the I386 directory doesnt find what you are looking for?

And it doesnt mention a file name?

I think this might be your next best bet to try and fix this before a full reinstall....

I must agree with johnb6767 - this has got to a point where a repair install >>might<< fix it, but more likely a clean install will be required: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html

Please be advised that what ever I did from instructions above nothing has changed still the same and still getting the same issue.  

So what I did was went through hp, since this is an hp product asked for their help.  They give tech support through chat and they sent me some links and instructions and that fixed the issue.
This is what hp had told me to do and I am hoping that whoever gets this same issue, this will help them solve the problem....
first, SpySubtract.lnk = this is basic 2.66, do a full scan of c drive and delete what ever it founds.  this is a 30 day free trial.  (note:  delete this program from your computer when done using)
second, follow this link and perform all
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=bph06569&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&dlc=en&lang=en
don't forget to reboot your computer when asked.  
This fixed my issue...

Now, how can I post this to everyone to see so this might help them... also how can have my point value back because no one was able to help me so I can still use this point value for future need.

Thank you...
