This is regarding my friend's computer.

She is getting the following error on a Blue screen upon turning on the computer:

STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SECURITY
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for assistance.



What is wrong with her computer? Should she take it to a specialist or is it possible for her (average user with not much technical know-how) to fix this?


Please help...


EDIT: it runs Windows XP
