I am trying to do a full recovery on my pc. I run Windows Xp media center 2005. It loads to the
full recovery and then before it gets to the menu(for full destruction) it
comes up with a blue screen that says can't load file \system root\system32\config\security
because its corrupt , absent, or not writable. Windows starts up fine and
goes to desktop fine it just won't allow me to run recovery. I looked in
system folders and that file is there so I don't know how to fix it so I can
do a full recovery . I tried going in to system volume to do the registry
thing says access denied, went and unhide system folders still says access
denied. I have inserted disc to do recovery also it doesn't work that way
either just skips and goes to my desktop. I even tried installing the recovery console so when I start my pc
I could do it that way but the recovery starts and then before menu get the error message again.
I noticed a few weeks ago that alot of my files/folders the name of the folder etc is wriiten in blue instead of black, they use to be all black but not alot of the system ones and the c:/drive one is marked in blue.
ty for any help

Manufacturer, system model? Laptop or desktop?

Recovery CDs or recovery partition?
