Default Recovery console question

I have a corrupted file in which I need to get into recovery console. I chose r for recovery console and entered 1 at which windows installation would you like to log into, I then pressed enter at password prompt. I am now at the the prompt of "C:\windows>"

What do I need to do now please?


PS...the error msg I was getting is "following file is missing or corrupt....


What do I need to type in recovery colnsole to fix this please?

how long does chkdsk /r take to run?

edit---- Is this what I need to do?

expand <cd drive>:\i386\system\*.* <system drive>:\windows\system\

Replace <cd drive> with the drive letter for your cd drive and <system drive> with the drive letter of your system drive. Also if the i386 folder is in a different location, use that instead.
