What makes you think it's missing? You cannot boot windows unless there is a copy in the c:\> drive.

If you are looking for it, but can't find it, go to Folder Options>View and make sure "show all files" is checked. Msdos.sys is a "hidden" "read only" file by default.

Sarfaraz,

You can safely remove all files with the *.tmp extension, as well as everything in your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

Leave folders with the *.tmp extension alone, unless they're in C:\Windows\Temp as well.

Good luck,
