    So out of the blue, my old computer which my family still uses got some weird ass error. What do I do!? BTW there are important files very dear to said family so I need it, please advise me about this error:

    Windows cannot start because a file is missing or corrupt:

    \windows\system32\config\system

    Use a windows CD to repair



    (something along those lines)

    I have a windows cd, so please computron gods, tell me what I can do to save the computer and save the important files.

    Choose the second repair. The first will take you to the recovery console where you probably won't know what to do.

    Yeah I think I went to the one you're talking about mdaniel, it was C:\Windows and when I typed \help it would give me a whole list of foreign commands.
