I turned on my computer today and it said "windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt C:\windows\system32\config\system" and I fixed the problem by using Microsoft's Help & Support link http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;307545 After I got that fixed, I went to My Computer and all of my files were missing. Before all of this, I was using 60gb of my hardrive and right now, it still says the same thing. All of my Program Files are still there with all the programs I originally had installed but none of them work. I will probably have to re-install them. Also, in Add/Remove Programs, my printer is the only thing showing up, after I just got done re-installing it. How can I get all of my files back that were in My Documents and do I have to re-install of my programs?
