When I try to start my computer up, there is an error message that says \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM is either missig or corrupt and try the system recovery CD. Each time I tried a recovery, it ends with a warning message and says that there are missing recovery files so either the CD or CD-ROM is damaged. I tried to recover just that file it specified under advanced options, but then the warning message says "No files matching the name you specified were found." I hope that I won't have to completely reformat the thing. Please let me know if you can be of assistance.
Thank you so much for your time,
