extract ping.exe from your XP CD and place it in C:\Windows\System32, or run sfc /scannow from the command prompt

Pop in your XP CD. Open up a command prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd). Type in these commands.

X: <- where X is your CD drive letter
cd i386
expand ping.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\ping.exe

but windows file protection only scans for replaced versions that are not digitally signed and verified by microsoft.. and would be hard for a virus writer to install code into it while keeping the digital ID for the file.. which WFP looks for... i hope im correct

if not pleez correct me
