    HI,

    I have currently installed windows XP service pack 2. My sister has installed a vista theme pack over the windows xp while i was away.Now it was super slow.so i un-installed the theme pack.

    But now it gives various kind of missing dlls annd registry errors.I can't re-install Windows XP cause i am super busy with my exams and also i don't have time to re-install all those softwares. So can any one help? I dnt have system restore point as well.

    digishank, first, welcome to Wilders! With the Registry's corruption, no restore points and I assume never having used backup software, unfortunately, an OS re-install is the only way to go.

    Once that PC is back, use the free Paragon Drive Backup 9.0 Express program to make a complete backup. Also, create a Limited User Account for your sister, so nothing can be installed unless you do it.
