    Does anyone knows a solution for the error message
    windows cannot load the registry hive systemroot\system32\config\software
    it is missing or corrupted
    There must be another way except the format

    something in c:\windows\system32\config/software is corrupted. Not for sure if it will help, run a scan disk and have it fix any errors it finds. see if that helps.

    No scandisk in XP and chkdsk will not solve the problem. I'd do a reinstall of XP with the repair option.

    could also try running "sfc /scannow"

    You can install XP OVER XP too, this allows you to keep your programs and data in tact, and fix the problems in the files.. I just did it yesterday, treat it like an UPGRADE to WIN XP... works great.
