Alright, so windows has the system file checker that will find and replace any corrupted system files and uses your external media (original install cd) to check the files..

Now what happens if the original install media is an original version of windows without any service packs and your trying to run the SFC command on a fully updated version of xp with SP3?

Is it going to revert all files back to the original pre-service pack stage?
