Enter the Set UP screens go to "device security" and disable the RFID and Asset Control entries to make the first issue go away

The second issue is a far more difficult issue to resolve--if the message is really "winnt\system32\config\system is missing" it means that a portion of your registry is corrupt.

Because you have windows 2000, you really have only one shot at fixing this --tapping f8 and the startup to access the advanced boot menu and choosing LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION

Windows keeps once copy of the registry in c:\windows\repair (more with XP), and running last known good will retrieve that copy from there
