I received the cd today.  Before we begin I have a couple of questions.


1)  Laptop came pre-installed with Windows XP Professional.  My cd is Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3, am I good to proceed with this cd?


2)  In this topic, post #11, I ran the Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10, could this have created some of my problems (icons)?  Reference:

Hi Jennifer
I'm back from vacation and will go ahead and continue to assist you.  In general this should not be an issue but let's go ahead and look for the file Undo_guimode.txt
Click on START - Search and search for this file:  Undo_guimode.txt
You can also do it this way to double check.  Click on START - RUN and type in CMD.EXE and click OK.  It should already put you in this folder C:\Windows\System32
If you see that as the prompt then go ahead and type the following and press the Enter key.
DIR Undo_guimode.txt
You should get a file not found.  If the file is found then we need to rename it or remove it so just let me know if you find it or not.
As for the CD version - yes that should be fine.
Please read both of these artilces first before you proceed so that you're aware of what you'll be doing.  Very similar to the links that Gringo provided you.

Thanks.  I will read those articles in just a sec, however I was hoping to just be able to do sfc /scannow (since I have the reinstallation CD), is this possible? 


The two main things I hope to accomplish with this CD are:  1) Being able to access the Display Properties and 2)  Accessing the internet via wirelessly.


I enabled the wireless adapter again.  I checked the status and it's connected, 48.0Mbps; packets are low sent: 698/received: 652.


Will a repair or reinstall or even scannow, correct these issues?  Thanks again.
