    I recently got a virus on my computer and got it fixed. However, I had to
    reinstall my operating system. When I got my computer back, the East Asian
    languages could no longer be added.
    Like others, I tried adding and got a prompt telling me to insert a Windows
    XP Professional Service Pack 3 CD.
    I ordered the CD. It costed $10.99 including shipping and handling (here is
    where I'm complaining). Now, the installation for the East Asian languages
    make it halfway before it AGAIN prompts me to insert the CD. My computer does
    not seem to have a c:\i386 or a c:\windows\i386.
    Could anyone tell me how to use the CD properly? I tried redirecting the
    prompt through the CD and tried installing the CD, but nothing has worked.

  2. Sounds like you did a Repair Install, not a Clean Install, James. Only the
    latter will resolve your infections.

    Mmm. But is there anyway to reinstall the East Asian language pack? I have
    the CD and all.

  4. Have you done a Clean Install yet?
