I have question about this problem "missing file windows\system32\config\system"

That file is a registry file. By missing it could also mean corrupted which is what I suspect. Was this computer shut down incorrectly (pulling the plug, etc.)? Does the computer show any signs of infection by malware?

doesn't work after that I did repair by CD "chkdsk /r/f" and it was worked after 1 day again appear this problem .

Do you mean that after you ran chkdsk, the BSOD went away, and after another reboot, it started to crop up again? Do you know the error code on the blue screen (it should be something like 0x????????)?
Do you remember anything happening to the computer before the BSOD problem? Any software, hardware installed?

I'm sorry to late, Actually I wrote this topic in "Computer Won't Boot - Malware Related" and I didn't find it and I see it now here .

I don't know if there is malware, and I think this problem case HDD maybe has bad sector but I don't know if bad sector do this problem ? because when I try to install windows show me through install I have to skip some files and i try again didn't show me this message and I'm sure CD for windows it's okey .

If you have your windows install CD, then follow the instructions in this link: http://tech.icrontic...pair_windows_xp
I'm talking about your computer, the one with the BSOD.
If you don't have your CD, then go here: http://sites.google....-console-for-xp and burn a disc.
Then follow the instructions above.

I'll deal with your problem first, then I will proceed to the problem with the computer you don't have.

Awesome! Good job! :D

The solution for your computer should also work for the one with the registry error. Try it and let me know how it works out.
