When i start my computer I receive this error message:
"Windows could not start because the file is missing or corrupt:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

I need to know what to type in the recovery console to copy the file from my
XP CD. I get to the C:\WINDOWS prompt but am unsure what to do next. Can
anyone help me out?
Thanks
