I tried to switch my computer on the other day and got his message:- windows would not start because the following file is corrupt or missing \windows\system32\config\system
you can attempt to repair this file starting windows setup using original setup cd-rom then select "r" at the first screen. I then get a menu 1: c:/windows
which i go into but what do i do from there, can anyone help?
