Spec' : Dell 5000 series desktop, Winxp, 1G (I think), Not currently on the network.
Error message: missing or corrupt file: \Windows\System32\ Config\ System further: it states that using the install disk will not fix the problem.
Recently, total reinstall. as i remember we left it with a virus before we brought it back from retirement.
Well, (please don't cringe) I LOANED IT TO A FRIEND! So it's mine to fix...and their's to use! ugh...
I didn't install a virus protector as they were hasseling me for the loan. ugh.. I thought a stern waring would do. Well here I am again! Thank God for these forums and the wonderful people on them.
