|Have you a friend who has a computer with a floppy drive? If so you could download it and create it on there. However, it should not be necessary for restoring a registry.|
Tap F8 while booting. On the Startup screen select one of the Command Prompt options.
From the C prompt type:
scanreg /restore (then hit Enter key).
If that doesn't bring up the restore screen then try this:
Type the following three commands "exactly as written" (including spaces where shown) and hit the Enter key after each one:
[Just for info, the first two commands get you to c:\windows\command]
If the restore screen arrives, by whichever method, use 6 & 7 from post #11 above, then reboot.
As I said in #2, the files might not really be missing or corrupted at all. Registry corruptions are far more common so the registry restore could well sort it out.
We all live on the same ball.
