That was a normal SFC run, you won't get any report or anything, it just runs and goes away. Did you try the download after that? Yes, you do have to reload drivers when running the repair. As you probably noted you were actually re-installing XP. The only difference is it maintained your current registry and you did not have to re-install all your software. I tend to assume that everyone has large hard drives and that drive space is not an issue. Is that the case with you? This is starting to make me wonder about the integrity of your hard drive. Run a chkdsk on that drive on your next re-boot and see if that shows anything. Do you have any other diagnostic tool you can run on the drive?

So I went ahead and took the other path you suggested, and booted to the CD, took the option to install as if from scratch, and then elected to repair the installation. It took over and hour to get back to normal, except my sound is now gone. Probably need to reinstall the SB Audigy drivers, and I expect that to not be a big deal. Then I went to the Windows update site and tried to install the .NET Framework SP2 again. It looked to run fine, although very very slowly, until the progress bar as at 100% and then it seemed to lock. It took almost 4 hours to reach that point, with regular but not constant hard drive activity the whole time. Then the hard drive activity stopped for over 20 minutes and it seemed locked. I rebooted and tried running the install from the file, and I'm back to where I was to start with and it seems to lock after a few minutes. I'll try the whole process again tomorrow or the next day, as soon as I get the time, and not go to the web update but try from the download file.
