    My XP PC started rebooting in a loop, never getting into windows. I got the message: '\windows\system32\c_437.nls is corrupt...press 'r' during first screen to repair'. I did some research and I figured out how to get to windows setup and enter the recovery console.

    I lost track of where I read it but I was supposed to type: 'Copy c:\i386\c_147.nls c:\windows\system32\' at the prompt
    I did that and it said 'access denied' ?

    What else could I try at this prompt to fix this file?
