    More details and i might

    Who and how installed your XP ?
    Theres a CD floating around somewhere.
    What does this mean ?
    "and I get windows/system32/config/system"
    Where do you get it ?
    p.s.You can't own a Windows computer and not have a Windows cd.

    Answer is,
    XP Home or Pro.
    I guess you'll have to buy one.
    Sounds like its a Dell you have.Yukk.

    Just kidding,but

    Dell and HP are known to only sell pc's with Windows installed.
    No disk,but ask your Mom if she forgot to give it to you.
    Isn't the name of the disk obvious.?
    I just named them,
    Windows XP Home or Windows XP Pro.
    Don't you have any computer stores or Office Supplies where you live ?

    Sorry to hear that

    College students really need a PC these days.My 11 year old Grandson is
    learning at school and doing home projects.
    But XP home in Canada is about $ 250. Maybe $200 US.
    It might drop since Vista arrived.
    Lets try to fix your problem.Start here,
    What does this mean ?
    "and I get windows/system32/config/system"
    Where do you get it ?
