I'm hoping somebody recognizes the nic of Sharon F. at the bottom:
i've been frustrated trying to log back onto the microsoft site's
newsgroup equivalent and want to make sure that she knows I not only
got her response, but appreciate the help greatly.
If someome out there can pass it on to her, I'd be very greatful and,
after all, all such small favors ensure a ten-fold return when you
least expect it! :P

I'm not familiar with the HP disk set. Judging by the number of CDs it
sounds like they are a multiple disk image (exact copy of the original
drive) instead of install media.

If your HP CDs are not recognized as sources by SFC perhaps there is a
main
i386 folder on the drive. Similar to the old Windows\Options folder it
contains copies of the original Windows files in compressed form. If
present, it may be C:\i386 or tucked into one of the HP folders.

As Service Packs are released, a folder is added under Windows. This
will
be labeled $ServicePackFiles$ and contains an additional i386
subfolder.
Any files in this location that are newer version source files -
different
than the original i386 files.

In the registry editor you'll find at least two references (SourcePath
and
ServicePackSourcePath) to the locations of these file stores in this
key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

If necessary, you can edit the paths to the relative i386 folders on
your
system. Helpful to know if they're different from the default
locations.

The following site is not a Microsoft site but they have a pretty
decent
write up about how Windows File Protection and SFC work.
http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html

Also, if unable to find original source for files (i386 folders),
you'll
want to contact HP and ask them how you should implement SFC with
their
system setups.

Thanks very much, Wes; I can't figure out why I was able to "sign-up"
one time, then, upon wanting to respond to Sharon, unable to sign back
on...all settings for trusted sites remained the same, yet my sign-on
kicked back on me.
Anyway, I appreciate the forward-ing and, yes, her advice -did-
help....she nailed it! :)
Your karmic wallet just grew slightly thicker, Wes...'preciate the
help.
Being a degreed parapsychologist all I can offer in return is a free
"house cleansing" if you get any rambunctous poltergeist :))
(grins: as if my area of interest doesn't have a bad-enough rep...of
COURSE I don't charge money for my investigations...it was just a
joke)

Patrick,

Probably because you are accessing this newsgroup
(microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support) through a third party
(http://www.100ProofNews.com). Which I think is a sham.

$8.95/Month???? Why are you paying for something that is free anyway?

I see that you're using Forte Agent 2.0/32.652 as your newsreader. I know
nothing about how to use Forte Agent, I use Outlook Express. Outlook
Express is included with Windows.

If you aren't in love with Forte Agent, see these...
