Good that everything turned out well at last!!!

Some of my friends got a kind of strange virus today (that's what we assume it is, since all 3 of them got the same error).
When they restarted XP (normally) and the machine was trying to boot up, they got an error saying that a file in Windows/system32/config was corrupted! Tried everything (safe mode, rescue, last good known etc. but nothing could be done. All three got the excatly same error on the same day and they were all running NAV 2002.
The solution was sadly enough a new clean install.

Makes you think that you are never secure enough if you don't have a proper backup of everything!
