    windows has become corrupted. when i have attempted to reinstall windows the
    set up screen tells me " the file cmdide.sys is corrupted. press any key to
    continue". at the bottom of the screen it says " setup failed". do i need to
    format the disc so that i can reinstall windows and if so, how do i do it?

    thanks,

    mike

    Sounds like your XP CD is borked. Use another computer to make a fresh
    copy. Copying won't copy the scratches.
