Boot into Dos with a boot disk, then look under C:\Windows or where your window is installed.  Try to look for a 'system.000' or any file that begins with 'system.' be sure that the file is around 2 or 3kb, then rename the file to 'system.ini' and reboot.  These are the 'system.ini' backups when installing other programs.  That should take care of your problem.
