Thread: XP Pro repair problem (any help?)

  1. #1
    My sisters computer has a problem.

    It's running XP Pro
    When booting up a message comes up that says there's a problem with
    - \windows\system32\config\system
    and asks to repair Xp Pro.

    Now i know how to run XP repair but are there any alternative programs to fix this part of windows?

    Or should i just repair then reinstall everything which don't work again?
    Or bite the bullet & go for a format then fresh install of Xp?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried 'Last known good configuration’ option ? You hit F8 at boot then look at the options . It could be a corrupted file or driver , or missing Regfiles .

    No your right David , I was thinking he can't boot to windows so try f8 to access safemode or other options . Boot from cd then repair is a an option as well .

    I googled a fix here :
