    I'm suffering from the same issue: tried to unistall IM completely and then reinstalling it again: same error window pops-up. When trying to recover the install via the controlpanel applications install, it starts successfully and mails can be send and received. However, when exiting the application and restarting the same errormessage pops-up again and won't start IM. Looks like a registry entry has not been cleared during installation. Trying to find the registry key to clear and resolve the issue.

Registry errors generally occur when new programs are installed over old ones without the old programs being completely uninstalled. This can cause registry pile-ups and error messages. Another potential cause of these error messages can come from malicious Scan and repair any missing or damaged Windows registry files using RegCure Pro.

Windows error--"file c:\windows\system32\config\system missing"

This could also make reference to the files sam, software, security, or default. This error is caused by one of the registry hives becoming corrupt. To fix this, you can try the easy way first: using a Windows installation disk, boot from the CD or DVD and navigate to the "repair" option. This varies a bit depending on the operating system. In Windows XP, you will be asked if you wish to repair the computer using the recovery console. Windows Vista and 7 are a little different—asking if you wish to repair your computer. Your task is to get to the command prompt, so choose that option in Vista and 7.
Once you get to the command prompt (C:\>), type CHKDSK. Ttype CHKDSK /R. This will scan your file system for errors and just may fix the problem. Once it is finished, reboot the computer and see if the problem persists. Many times, you will succeed.
If this doesn't work, you may have to reboot from the startup disk and do a Windows repair or reinstall (the choices depend on what system disk your computer manufacturer has provided). The prompt for the Windows repair will come after you answer the question asking if you wish to use the recovery console and you choose not to do that. You will have to press F8 to accept the terms and conditions and then you should be asked if you want to repair a Windows installation. Choose that option and you can do a repair. Once you choose this option, you must select the copy of Windows to repair (normally choice #1). It will ask you for the administrator password. If there is no password, just hit RETURN. If there is a password, enter it. If you don’t know it, proceed to the next step, below.
It’s possible at this point that your computer manufacturer’s disk will not allow this option. It may want you to only install a new copy of Windows. This is OK to do, and if you choose it, be sure to tell the computer to install it by leaving the file system unchanged. What will happen is that you’ll have a new Windows installation, your data will be intact, but you will have to reload your programs.
We’ll cover the repair of the registry hives in another tip.

Computer turns on but will not load windows. Freezes after gateway comes on. Plus cannot start in safemode

Enter the BIOS and ensure that the Hard drive is indeed being seen by the computer.

Open up the chassis side panel and ensure that all conections are making contact.

My pc keeps either freezing or crashing altogether,this only seems to happen when i am surfing facebook ,or pictures on the web,I can watch youtube,or movies with no crashes at all,I've scanned for viruses...

Im guessing XP and if you have the CD do whats called a repair install. Choose the upgrade option then install it, this will not harm any of your programs at all you will just have to do all the windows updates when its finished. Cheers and please vote

My computer is freezing up constantly

It would be best if you do a series of tests for virus and malware infection. This is the most common cause for slowdowns of PCs. Here's a great tutorial for improving PC security using free programs.
Another problem may be some new programs or updates you installed. If you can pinpoint the time when these slowdowns started, and you can relate it with a program you installed at that time, then chances are this new program/update is causing the PC to stall.
Lastly, if nothing helps from the software side, then your PC may be suffering from a failing power supply unit. Desktop PCs older than 2 years are prone to this kind of a failure. If this is the case, you'll need to either get a new power supply unit, or repair the one you have. New PSUs are about $30-50 for low to mid range products, and the repair may cost less if you find a good computer repair shop or a TV repair shop. Most common failure in PSUs are the capacitors at the output, which serve as current stabilizers.
