I have a Win2000 PC that when it boots I get the error: cannot find winnt/system32/config/systemced the file is missing or corrupted.

it says i can repair this file by starting w2k and selecting 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
my question is, will this in anyway mess up or delete anything from my hd?
