    Hi,
    This is posted in another thread so apologies if I am wrong in posting it again seperately.
    I loaded my mates XP onto a new hard drive for him but on a different machineand had problems when I put the H/D into his machine.
    I have now put the new drive into the correct PC, and repaired windows. A few files couldn't be loaded which I guess is my problem but everything else was ok except I couldn't activate so did that over the phone.
    Now I can access the internet no probs but I have no automatic updates in control panel, tho I do have windows update on the start menu. If I click on windows update it just shows that it's trying to open the page but nothing happens... same if I go on the net and go to microsoft.com.
    Also there is the security center icon in control panel, but clicking that just brings up a blank page.
    And lastly (so far!!) I can't access outlook express.... clicking the shortcut just results in a "beep" then nothing.
    Any help in solving this appreciated....
    Thx
    Kev
