This is my problem that I'm having.. I ran this software called easycleaner and I was deleting duplicate files.. not knowing that this one was very a important one..anyway now I'm getting this on my kids computer screen
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copy of the above file.
ok I would normaly just pop in the reformat disk..but Bestbuy lost it when I had to take their computer in, in Nov of last year to get a new motherboard fixed, and now they never gave it back to me and it has been of course to long and it's probably thrown out..anyway..so without a reformat disk..I really am lost.
I have tryed doing microsofts SP1 ( don't have SP2 yet on their puter) Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 1 Utility: Setup Disks for Floppy Boot Install.. and no luck I tryed using the recovery console but I can't get no where with that because I run c:\windows>bootcfg /rebuild, add, list, scan, etc... and all I get is an error saying there isn't a boot.ini in my windows try runing chkdsk..tryed that won't let me run that because I it says there is no AUTOCHK.EXE in that drive or in no CD rom.. so I'm at my wits..been at this since 2:00pm my time and it's 10:41pm now..please if anyone can help that would be great...thanks..so sorry so long.
