Hi guys need your help.

My main windows xp installation says something along the line of...

This file is corrupt or missing

Then it says....

To repair this put windows disk in and press r.

I do this and it take me to the reapir consol where it asks me to choose the drive i want to log on to, i tell it, then all it does is goes to the C:\windows prompt?, what am i supposed to do from there?

Is there any chance of me recovering from this or is it a matter of backing up (as i have no problem reading from the drive) and re-installing or will i be able to recover.

cheers in advance guys.

And press Enter.
