\System Root\System 32\Config\Security
And it tells me that it's corrupted. absent or not writeable.
I've tried searching the net for solutions, but they all include reinstalling Windows with the disk. My computer didn't come with one. I even tried a suggestion of running WINNT32.exe, but I get an error that my current version of Windows is too new.
I've read quite a bit of articles the last few days and am tired of articles that are way too technical (I require the Complete Idiot's Guide version), or tells me to use my Windows disk. Is there any way out of this? I thought I was somewhat computer savvy until I slammed my head into this wall. Now I don't know what to do, except ask you guys.
I really want to do a System Recovery because I bought a new printer and the software is telling me that something from the previous printer is still on my computer. I've searched, used Add/Remove and HP's AIOscrubber with no luck.
