My computer became very slow today so I tried to restart. When it attempted to restart the windows logo screen never went away and the computer did not boot past that point. I then restarted trying to boot into safe mode. When I did a blue screen came up and said that SystemRoot\System32\Config\Software was corrupt, absent, or not writeable - Beginning dump of physical memory. I am wondering what I need to do. I'm thinking I probably have to reformat, but I am looking for any guidance or help. Not exactly sure how to reformat either if my computer wont even boot up. I run Windows XP Home. Thanks for any help you can give me.
