Message " Files that are required for windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognised versions. To maintain system stability windows must restore the original versions of these files" displays often.

But the key of the OS CD- Windows XP Professional installed - is presently not available. So, please tell us about the probability of using some other same OS CD available now.


Software/Hardware used:
Windows XP Professional- OS

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is illegal to run unlicensed sw on any OS. The message is often shown when u use crack or like other illegal sw to overcome the 30 days evaluation or trial period. Though I am providing the solution that u made it by mistake.
To avoid such situation, u must repair the windows xp with xp setup cd. During repairing no software or ur settings are changed. All are intact, but u must download a software to find out the xp cd key / serial key. This sw helps to find out ur xp key just double click the “win key finder.exe” and write down the key, when xp asking for key just supply it and complete the procedure. I provide the link below:

Hope it works for u…..

    First, scan your machine for malware. Use a program other than your normal A/V, so that if your normal program missed something, you have another chance to pick it up. Run as many times as needed to make sure your machine is clean. I like Malwarebytes for this purpose. If you, for some reason no longer have the CD key (no Microsoft label on the case?) you could use Magical Jelly Bean to ferret out the Microsoft CD keys of the OS and other MS programs that may be installed on the machine. Save and print the output, and keep the paper in a safe place for future reference. Once you have that, you can either replace the files by running sfc (see for instructions) or manually. The former is a lot easier. Once you have done that, to ensure you are up to date on your patches re-apply SP3, then run Windows Update to ensure all the patches have been applied. If you are still having problems, save your data, wipe your drive, and do a bare metal install of the OS and programs you use. I keep a base image of my machines, since I do this at least once a year, more like twice for each of my machines, since I install and remove a lot of programs for testing purposes on them. Any programs I use that are not in the image, I'll add as I need them, though there are some that get added right away upon occasion. If this is the case, or there has been a service pack, I'll make a new image.
