Hi Poolcaptain :welcome:

Can you tell us the Windows you have (Windows XP, Windows Vista, 7...) so we can move you topic to the corresponding section?

Does it specify which file? Your title got cut off as it is too long as well, in case you did not notice. Anyway I'll leave this to SleepyDude as he's 10X as knowledgeable as myself, just figured I'd see if it mentions the file name as that would help.

Windows/system32/config/system that's the file name. It says it missing or corrupt.

Hi,

During boot press F8 to access this screen:

Select Safe Mode with Command Prompt option from the boot menu and see if you can access the command prompt?
If you can type and press Enter:
chkdsk /X /R C:

If the system asks if you want to do the check on reboot answer Yes and then type exit to restart the system.
