What the heck?...

My system was working fine then it just stiffed up on me. I had to unplug it to shut down...nothing worked. I did a surface scan of the HD and it came out fine but now when I boot up...the XP logo doesn't show then this error shows up...

WINDOWS COULD NOT START BECAUSE THE FOLLOWING FILE IS MISSING OR CORRUPT:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

uhhh...can I fix this withought having to format?

HEEELLPPP!!!!!! :cry:

Mine was down to a few power cuts in the area ...I believe.
Same as not shutting down properly really.

Not experienced it from any other causes

Hi nelly123.

First of all- welcome to Daniweb :).

We ask that members not piggy-back questions on to a thread previously started by another member here in the Viruses, Spyware & other Nasties forum, (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Please start your own thread and post your question there. When you do, please try to give us as much specific info as possible regarding the problem (exact error messages, system specs, etc.).

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:
