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

hmmmmmm then what can be done.... the registry backup files from C:\Windows\Repair folder is missing.....
u cannot copy them from another system coz these are the backup files of ur system's registry !!

what was the reason behind doing this recovery ??
can we think here of a Repair Install :-?
