    I have the following problem with my HP Pavilion m7570n. When I turn the system on if gives the following message: File is missing or corrupt
    \windows\system32\config\system. Is there any way to fix this problem without using the HP restore from the partition? If I do have to do the restore from the partition, will I lose the photographs and emails on the computer? Thanks for any assistance?

    Try this first -

    If that does not work then do a repair XP install (not the HP restore)

    I am pretty sure the HP restore partition will wipe everything out and put it back to factory fresh.
