Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
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
it happened shortly after being infected with malware, and I was receiving assistance from the guys on the malware board here....this is the post where this error began, so you have some history of what has been tried in an attempt to fix the issue:
I found a windows xp disk, but it would not allow me to copy the file from the disk...it said 'access denied'...but I don't think it makes a difference, because we already copied the original file from the ServicePack folder, and it did not fix the issue...
I appreciate the help...and am hoping to get this computer back up and running shortly...because I have a lot of work to do in order to meet a deadline, and that computer is vital in doing so...
