If you have System Restore running use it to revert back to before the stage where you force uninstalled IE 7, which you will have gathered was not a wise move.

hi Pete, Thanx 4 ur reply.
Sorry to ask but what does it mean by system restoration? I had thought mean reinstalling window xp. Please explain it.
1) Can i still restore it? Though i tried through Glary undelete, it shows the file but unable to restore it? (Again what is the use of Glary undelete).

2) Nither i can access any of my software except internet or install any, so even i can't utilize System optimizer.
thnx again

System Restore does not reinstall Windows - it restores your system to an earlier point in time. If you can access System Restore chose a point prior to 'uninstalling' IE7.

How to restore Windows XP to a previous state

Windows XP System Restore Is Easy to Use

If, as you say ....
Quote:
Nither i can access any of my software ....
can you start the computer in Safe Mode? ....

Quote:
To use the F8 key to start Windows XP in Safe mode
Restart the computer.
Some computers have a progress bar that refers to the word BIOS. Others may not let you know what is happening.
As soon as the BIOS loads, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears.
If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. If this happens, restart the computer and try again.
Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, select Safe mode and then press Enter.
If so ....

How to start the System Restore tool by using the safe mode option with the Command prompt in Windows XP

To be honest you have totally fouled up your system

When you delete a file only the reference to it in the file system is removed - the file remains on the hard drive, but the space occupied by it is marked as available for writing. This means that any continued activity on the computer which involves writing data to disk can overwrite the file. Once overwritten it cannot be undeleted.
Quote:
Is there any method where i can install trial version of Window XP sp2 or sp3?
There is no such thing as a trial version of XP -that OS is no longer available. The only time when trial versions are available from MS is when a new version of an OS is close to completion. Then a time limited Release Candidate is made available to the public, essentially for testing by a multitude of users to iron out any bugs. Once the OS becomes available retail there is no free lunch

Without a copy of XP you are almost up the creek without a paddle.

The only possibility is to borrow a copy of XP of the same service pack level as yours - SP2 and make a Repair install using your COA number. A Repair install does not affect your data or installed programs, but, as always, a current backup of your important data should be maintained in case disaster strikes.

BTW - when you get the computer up and running normally you must install SP3 - as of the middle of July SP3 is a requirement for accessing Windows Update and obtaining the latest security patches and fixes.

It is unfortunate that System Restore was not running as that was a viable option to restore the computer to an operating state.

As I see it you have one remaining option as I posted above .....

except to suggest that your computer may be infected and in the state it is in now it would appear that you would be unable to run the software required for analyss by our malware analysts.

Hi bevkoof,

Due to normaliz.dll blooper, explorer shell is not loaded/running. Using taskmanger as you had previously, try> file>new task> browse to c:\windows and click on Explorer.exe. Perhaps if you can get the shell running you will have better success at getting past ie error. If so, may I suggest you install or reinstall IE.

If XP is on the C:\ drive you cannot format the drive through Windows as it is in use running the OS.

Thanks Pete, but there has to be some method! While Googling, i came across a article about
1)formatting by using Pen Drive as a bootable medium. Is it possible w/o damaging pen drive? (no, i can't take that risk).
2) i have down loaded Window XP sp2 & Sp3 from Microsoft Website.
A)Does it work? Is it free?
B)or do we need key later-on?
3) if yes! can't i maKE a bootable CD out of it and format my C;/ drive and install Win Xp2 from 'this' CD?

Guys, you have solve my problem, i am not a person who easily give up. Please..
Thanks

From post #1 ....
Quote:

Which begs the question - why do you want to format your C:\ without a CD to re-install Windows?

SP2 & SP3 which you have downloaded from MS are just the Service Packs containing all the patches, etc issued since SP1 - there is no operating system in the downloads. So, no, you cannot make a bootable CD from a Service Pack.

I can offer one last thread of hope before you give up on this .....

I don't have an installation CD for Windows XP - what if I need one?

apart from what I have posted twice already ....
