    Hi I have a Dell Dimension 4700 running Windows XP and I keep getting this error message randomly when I reboot. "WINDOWS COULD NOT START BECAUSE THE FOLLOWING FILE IS MISSING OR CORRUPT
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"
    I have reformatted 3 times and each time it happens again but it is random. Sometimes it is after 4 days, sometimes it lasts a couple weeks. When it happens I cannot boot into safe mode or get around it any other way than to reformat.
    Can anyone help me with this please?
