First I must inform all, I'm a novice. As I attempted to restart my computer (Dell desktop windows XP home), after downloading adobe reader; my computer would not boot to windows.

The screen has the following: Corrupt \windows\system32\config\system
& it states to hit r to repair but it's not repairing just revolving back to the same message.

I do have the cd-installation window XP disk.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated,
Thanking you in advance for your time,

myys

PS: I've read the article about XP repairing itself. I'm a novice

I tried exactly what you stated but only got the message below:



Message reads: or Corrupt
You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows set using the original setup CD-Rom
select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
