Agent 99 .........
You seem to be quite precise re: message description which raises a question. Is the error message missing or corrupted C:\Windows\System32\Config\System
or is it what you have stated? Edit follows:
OK, close enough upon a re-read - try this. From a command prompt in the recovery console
REN system system.old
Press ENTER after each command.
Exit and enjoy
Note - spaces are very important in each of these three commands.
If you don't like this approach, go to the MS
Knowledge base and look at the official fix.
You're welcome ........
