I have XP Pro loaded on C and D drives, because C drive on boot required a reload of hal.dll. I reinstalled XP pro on my spare Drive D and want to know if I can run the scannow to verify my original files. It would be a great help not to have the job of reinstalling all my programs, the data is secure on a seperate drive, and so I don't mind trying anything. Can I run system restore from the D drive XP
