I do have this file ... like anybody does ... but as I said ... its a user based file ... in use while using windows ...
it cannont just be copied ...
ah yes I just looked into the file .... yes it is very user specific ... you will have no luck by copying it ...
the only chance you got is to restore the file from file system if possible ...
get the software easy recovery
and try to restore the file ... remember the file is unrecoverable as soon as it get overwritten ... so do not write any information to the disk !!!
if you are not able to recover the file you simply have to reinstall windows ...
there is no other chance

Please, post info about your hardware. Especially for motherboard! I can bet it's with SIS chipset. And one more: I can bet your partitions are larger than 20GB, aren't they?
So, with that combination - SIS chipset and partitions larger than 20GB, the customer is supposed to see that message: "Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM " very often. And have to preinstall WinXP, or to restore that file, recording to that article: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_sys32.htm. But I made all nessesery - with the help of PartitionMagic now all my partitions are smaller than 20GB and I'm lucky!
