Last night i slept, my pc was working superb, no anitvirus was on as it expired just few days back, but it was hell to see the morning, i woke up my computer was looking as usual but when i clicked restart after that i got some error of missing .dll file for explorer i clicked ok and then my xp just didnt start, everytime giving me some stupid errors... i was having xp on other pc installed copied a whole system32 folder from there and pasted in my pc ( i think thats stupidness ) coz everytime xp was just demanding for missing files in system32 (dll and exe)!!
