Xp pro won't allow me to add new users, gives me an error message saying that the files are missing. Whats the easiest way to repair missing or damaged files????

Use System File Checker

Start - Run -
in the Run box type
SFC /scannow
and hit Enter

Note the space between SFC and /scannow

Upper or lower case, it does not matter.

A dialogue box will appear advising of progress. You may be asked for your XP CD, unless it was a pre-install in which case it should look on the HDD.

Takes a few minutes.
