Huge Windows problem

I was doing the Windows XP Crashed? tutorial, when i came across this;

copy C:\windows\repair\system C:\windows\system32\config\system
The file didn't exist, so I just copied my orginal file from \windows\tmp (See tutorial on where this came from) and i just did the other files like the tutorial said.

now i get an error when starting windows, but its too fast to read and the computer just reboots. i try getting into the recovery console but the security file is changed, and now the passwords are different. does anyone know the administrator password for this file now? the old password doesn't work and i can't change the file anymore! help!!!!

My day just got worse. Now it's asking for the Windows Automated System Recovery Disk into the floppy drive. It's a laptop, I don't have a disk like that, I don't have a floppy drive. Now what? :mad:

Edit: You know what? Honestly I just need to get my Office 2003 Beta 2 Email files out of there... How it's done doesn't matter. I just need to know what files, how to get there, send them through the network and than I will format. That's all I need. Anyone?

If it is a fat32 file system you could use a 98 floppy boot disk then copy the files to a floppy. All you need to know is where the store folder is for Office 2003 emails.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
