hi, been on all day no probs, nothing dloaded for a few days. restarted ust out of habit, i do it now and again, and i go tthe message cannot start xp pro missing or corrupt file system32\config\system. not necessarily in that order though :(.. anyway managed to just load the cd again as if i was going to repair it, yo uknow how it loads a load of stuff before the repair prompt, ,anyway, i just tried it after that and it's booted up, but would like to know what went wrong. any ideas?
Should add that I don't know how reliable that explanation is, but it's the first time I've discovered someone giving a possible reason for this rather common error with XP and w2k systems (more so with XP).
