    Default Dell windows error message

    My Dell has an error message of:

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
    \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

    You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup
    using the original Setup CD-Rom.
    Select "r" at the first screen to start repair.

    Well of course Dell did not provide me with the startup CD and if they had I would not be able to perform tasks as suggested. I'm unable to get to my desk top.

    Any suggestions to help out there?
