Windows File Protection Error

By paul3 ·
I continue to receive the following message on my PC:

Files that are required for Windows to run prpoerly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability,Windows must restore the original version of these files. Insert your Windows 2000 Professional CD now.

I have try to updated and it takes it but I still get the same message.

Thank You

Paul W.

still being prompted

I tried that fix (sfc /scanonce) and inserted the cd upon reboot. But I'm still being prompted upon every subsequent reboot for the cd.
It seems to be spreading now too, as 4 PC's on the network exhibit this behaviour within the past week. It has only started happening since the 2nd week on Jan./05. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

solution !

Found a fix that worked for me! Try this for 2000 or XP. Basically it's just a batch file that reregisters the dll's associated with cryptographic services.

This worked for me as well

This is a good fix that is unlikely to have any adverse effects on your machine.
