XP PC, error message: Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

I'm familiar with the manual procedure from Microsoft on where we copy via BART a previous restore point into the active SAM and related folders

Is there any way to use the Farbar FRST utility to restore a restore point?

FRST is...a tool designed for dealing with malware and is only used here at BC in the Malware Removal Logs Forum.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/ , you will see that it is listed as a Security tool, one of the tools used to deal with malware situations.

If you have no malware situation...I suggest that you try to use an appropriate tool for system or O/S issues.

If you have a malware situation...I suggest that you follow the steps at Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html and post the requested logs in the forum where the Prep Guide exists.
