Pinball.inf Missing

When my friend tries to open control panel in XP he gets the error message that pinball.inf is missing. Any ideas where I can get a copy of this file and where it should live.

It should be in C:\Windows\inf and you should be able to get it from your XP installation disk.

It will be on the XP disk

He says that he cannot find his XP install disk. I have not used XP so for being a bit vague but is there a way he could use the recovery points to solve the problem. If so how would he go about doing this.

If the error has only just started to happen then, yes a System Restore will probably fix things. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore and restore to a date before the error started occurring. Alternatively, email me with your email address and I'll send you pinball.inf, you can then send it to your mate and tell him to copy it to the C:\Windows\inf folder.
