    i don't understand that what could have possibly screwed your system to the extent that you have your windows installer deleted.
    anyways you can download it from A-Soft Technologies site.

    i would advise you to keep you system restore switched on. if you want you can set your own limits to the disk space it uses but it is always a good idea to have it on your system.

    try going to start>run and typing "SFC /Scannow" (without quotes). This will use the system file checker to replace/repair any missing system files from your original XP CD (which you should keep handy during this process).
