I have XP Professional and I unable to start my computer. I am getting an error message that reads windows\system32\config\system is corrupt or missing. It starts to insert the start up cd and press "r". The problem is I have no idea where the cd is. Is there a way to get around this without the cd? I tried to run it on safe mode but I get the same error message.
I was told it might be some type of virus? Which I can't understand since I have norton (symantec) and an aol firewall.
If I have to get a new disc, will I lose the information and programs I have on the computer?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
