I am running XP Pro and I seem to have removed some vital files doing a clean-up. System Restore is no good as it has been too long. The problem is I can no longer run Help/Support. My system tries to load the programme but it never loads. Secondly, I cannot display Users in Control panel User accounts.
The file opens but it is blank. Lastly I cannot access windows update. Once again the web site opens but has no content. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Have you tried putting in the XP cd and doing a repair install (I think thats what it is called)

What I would do is run scans for viruses/spyware/adware and run a registry cleanup prog such as RegScrubXp and see how you get on.

My first action would be
insert the XP CD
start > run & type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotes) and click ok.
this will check the integrity of core system files and replace any damaged ones
