PROBLEM: -
==========

One of the PC in my office is loaded with Win'XP home Edition. SP2
upgradation is done and all recent upgrades are done. It has Norton Anti
Virus 2004 with all the recent upgrades.

Recently while working in the internet the PC automatically rebooted twice
and windows dectected that the problem is with norton AV. Then again it
started to reboot but stopped in black screen giving message Windows can not
start as "\windows\system32\config\system" is corrupted or missing. Then
after repeated attempts windows did not start.

Then with the help of another HDD loaded with win'XP I started the PC. But
VERY VITAL files in One user account's my documents folder, ORIGINALLY WHICH
WAS PRIVATE, can not be accessed, copied, moved,shared nor even detected.
Giving message access is denied.

QUESTION: -
===========

#) CAN U SUGGEST ANY WAY TO ACCESS OR COPY THESE FILES?

FURTHER PROBLEM: -
==================

To start the damaged windows'XP I replaced the
"\windows\system32\config\system" file from an working version of the Win'XP.
At these windows began to start normally, but just before the wellcome screen
was about to appear, "lsass.exe" gave a message, "on retriving password it
does not tally with, hence the password is not correct", and it tries
rebooting to give the same output repeatedly.

QUESTION: -
===========

#) CAN U SUGGEST ANY WAY TO BOOT THE DAMAGED WINDOWS?
OR
#) CAN U SUGGEST ANY WAY TO REPAIR THE "\windows\system32\config\system" FILE.


PLEASE SUGGEST ME ANY WAYS TO RETRIVE THESE VITAL FILES.

Waiting very egarly for your suggestions.

How to Perform a Windows XP Repair Install
http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Note: If your original Windows XP CD does not include SP2,
you'll need to make a new Windows XP CD with SP2 slipstreamed
before performing a "Repair Install".

Either one of the following utilities makes slipstreaming
(integrating) SP2 into Windows XP a breeze:

or
