'system' file in win XP corrupt :-(
I was wondering if any body has any suggestions as to what I should do to rectify a corrupt 'system' file which is preventing me from booting into win xp. The path of the file is c:\windows\system32\config\system.
When I try to boot I get an error message advising me to run the setup disk and select the 'r' option to try to repair the fault, but this simply leads to the command line in DOS.
Is there any backup version of the 'system' file that I could use or another way to get into windows so that I can try to use system restore?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
