Hi ,

In simple words this is a windows file which helps the computer to boot up to the desktop .This file can be reinstalled only by runing a recovery that takes the computer back to its original factory settings.But there are steps that can repair the file ......

  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: md tmp
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak

    delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\software
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\security
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\default

    copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system
    copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software
    copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
    copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
    copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default
  6. Type exit to quit Recovery Console. Your computer will restart.

If u dont have the windows cd then u can boot the computer to the system recovery page by tapping the f10 key repeatedly when the computer boots up then when u get to the recovery page hold on to the ALT key on the keyboard and then press D.The recovery console page opens up then type in the command chkdsk then a space followed by a forward slash then press r.....the repair will start then the computer will restart and hope it takes care of the issue.

OR

When the computer boots up tapp the f8 key repeatedly then u will get to the advance boot menu page then select safe mode and then hit enter .Select recovery console and then enter ,once the command prompt page opens tyoe chkdsk space forward slash r.......should repair the file and get u back to the desktop ....
If non of the options work you would have to run a recovery

ALL THE BEST

Your windows is corrupted, I recommend to re-install windows(backup your files first using a USB drive and scan them with your antivirus before you put them back). Since is a HP, click on start and type "recovery" select the option that allows you to go a factory default. You may have to select NO to options before you get to factory default set. The process could take a couple hours depending in your machine. Alternatives solutions will be like "repair windows" that actually never work. This recovery option is located in the partition of your hard drive sometimes shown as drive 'D"

Hi, This normally means that a windows file from the system32 folder is missing or corrupt. You will have repair that by using your operating system cd and go to repair when prompted. If this does not work you may have to install a clean copy of your operating system.

64-bit central processing unit is one that can support a higher amount of system resources than a 32-bit counterpart.
It has the ability to both recognize and use more amounts of available system memory to go along with its faster processing speeds.
If you want to install a 32-bit operating system on a computer with a 64-bit processor, you can--but you won't be taking full advantage of what your system has to offer you.

Place the installation disc for your 32-bit operating system in your computer's disc drive.
This can be one that you've purchased, as in the case of Microsoft's Windows operating system, or one that you've downloaded from the Internet, in the case of the Linux operating system.
Shut down your computer. Once completely off, turn it back on again.

Click "Next" to continue through your 32-bit operating system's setup program.
You will be asked to read the "TOS," or terms of service.
This is important legal information that you should read in detail, as it informs you of exactly what you're agreeing to by installing this operating system.

Specify any settings changes you want to make to the way your operating system is installed.
From these screens you can also input personal information into your operating system, such as your name or business information, which will save you the trouble of having to do it later when you install utilities.
Click "Install." The 32-bit operating system's setup program will format your hard drive, erasing all data on it.
It will then place the necessary operating system files on your computer.
This can take an hour or more depending on the operating system being used.
Once this process is finished, allow your computer to automatically restart.

I would recommend uninstalling the version of Adobe Reader you have installed through the Control Panel>Programs and Features.

Then download and install the latest version directly from Adobe's site.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista.

My desktop cannot shut down? After i install game that i download.


Try removing the game driver from the system then see if the problem is fixed. If this fixes the problem, make sure you have the correct drivers for VISTA. Most Vista platforms are 64 bit and if you are using a 32 bit driver that will cause the problem. Check for an updated game driver from the company that makes your driver. If they have had issues with VISTA and who hasn't they may just have a new driver for you. Good Luck with VISTA!

The easiest way in the long term is to.
Boot from Windows CD and after all files are loaded. Windows will ask you what you want to do. Install, Repair etc. Choose repair and follow instruction from there Windows will remove some files and reinstall in repair mode. You will not lose any files, during this process.
The reason I choose this method is because you can spend some hours trying to fix not starting problems and not succeed while a reboot in repair mode takes ¾ of an hour plus time to load drivers
