    I don't know how serious this is, but I would like to find out.

    Yesterday I decided to do the Disc Cleanup on my hard drive on my Laptop and while it was running I got this message:

    "Files that are required for windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore the original versions of these files.
    Insert your now."
    ^I'm guessing its asking to insert a windows installation CD, which didn't come with the computer, but it doesn't say what to insert.
    There were 3 buttons "Retry", "More Information", and "Cancel". When I pressed the Retry I got "The CD you provided is the wrong CD. Please insert the into your CD-Drive." "More Information" gave me "Possible reasons for the problem: -You have inserted the wrong CD. -The CD-ROM drive in your system is not functioning."
    Since I don't have that CD, my only option was to press Cancel. Which told me: "You chose not to restore the original versions of the files. This may affect Windows Stability. Are you sure you want to keep these unrecognized file versions?" So I pressed "Yes."

    So my question is: Is this a big deal? Things seem to be working fine. Is there anything else I need to do?
