Hello,
After downloading Internet Explorer 8 and attempting to restart my computer, the following message appeared- "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt Windows/System/32/config/system. My screen is black with this message in white letters- what do I do?

Hye to fix this you can do a system restore, on safe mode!

When the pc starts just press F8 after the bios verification,
You will get a menu to choose safe mode!
When you are on safe mode, you will be asked if you want to do a system restore of your machine!
Choose a date when your pc was working fine!
Then follow the instructions

Restart computer normally!

what if you can't get into safe mode or any other of the modes at all, I've tried, and I have no cd disk

PK,

This just happened to me. Did you get your pc running after this?

Thanks,

Dino
