  • windows\config\system corrupt help please!

    Hey guys help me!

    I dont know what happened to my computer, and nobody at home wants to take account for what happened, but here's what happened:

    whenever i try to boot windows it takes me to a black screen that says a file was corrupt or missing, which is the windows\config\system. We installed winxp on another drive just to get my document files on c: (where windowsxp was corrupted) because I need those files badly. However I cant get it coz it says "access is denied"... because i had it password protected in that windows. we tried to get it through DOS and it still wont let us access. please help me. I need my document files.

    The black screen also says I should go to recovery console, but it wont accept my admin password. I dont have any password other than that.

    Having backup copies reduces stress.

      Thanks! I think this will be very helpful but when i go to recovery, it wont accept the administrator password that I normally use. I have tried all possible passwords, though I know I only use one administrator password.

          My PC is ok now, though I will still be reformatting it after I back up the files.
