tell me.... are u really using XP... im asking this coz u have posted this question in Win2000 !!
or u did an upgrade from Win2000 to WinXP !!

coz if u are using Win2000 or have upgraded from Win2000.... then ur system may not have a WINDOWS directory... coz it will be WINNT !!

so the above command shud read this >> copy c:\winnt\repair\system c:\winnt\system32\config\system
:-?

u cannot copy them from another system coz these are the backup files of ur system's registry !!
