My PC went from working happily all day to a total crash. I'm now staring at a blue screem with

STOP:c0000218 {Registry File failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SECURITY
** it's log or alternatate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable


I have tried the option when I reboot to use last known good configuration and safe mode just does a physical memory dump and tells me to contact sys admin.

I have the MESH restore CD but can't get to a point where I can use it. Please help

You will need to borrow a full XP disk (not a recovery CD) then click here

Seems my Hard disk is not being read. I have to phone Mesh in the morning. Consensus seems to be I will need the XP Home CD but MESH don't give that....only a recovery CD. Any idea's what my strategy might be with them

OK the PC went to PC heaven in the sky. It's gone back to MESH so god only only knows when and if I ever get it back.

The collection was as good as the delivery.....0 out of 10.

Join me in prayer

Thanks for all suggestions and help anyway.
