I'm having a multi- tiered problem, and I'm stuck. Seems like trying to fix one thing, another thing goes wrong, and I can't move.

I loaded SP2 on an XP machine that got infected with some trojans I can't get rid of. After the SP2 installation XP won't boot up. So I was given some instruction on how to boot from the CD. But now there is a corrupted file, and I don't have a clue how to fix it.

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM


When I got into the Recovery Console to fix it I'm lost because I don't know the command to fix it.

Sorry to create another thread, but the gent that was helping me is MIA, and I'm running out of time to get this fixed.

Here is the other thread:

Thank you. That didn't work either, so I am going to format and start over. Please go ahead and close this thread.
