Hey Guys,
Was wondering if you could help me out with the following -
On starting windows, I get this message "\windows\system32\config\system" file is missing. Press r when blank page appears (or words to that effect! I have my windows xp disc in place and when it says press any key it goes back to the above message.
Going round in circles - any ideas? PC is fine (get one beep on booting up) but for some reason Win has been corrupted.
Cheers
Rob
