    If SYS files were deleted, you wouldn't be able to boot. I would take PCCONSULATE's advice and try the SAFE MODE option first. Otherwise, you'll have to find some other way to access the system or reload it.

    Can't give out information on this subject as it would be a violation of the EULA (End Users Licensing Agreement) from MS and border on hacking.

Boot a LiveCD of any sort and use it to undelete the files, or use the filesystem log (ext3 filesystem, xfs, etc.) to undo that activity. WinXP is near EOL and the lawful exploits for compatibility are permitted per Patriot Act, if you care about that.
I hope your relationship's all right, but I'd parry if she started walking around with a scalpel.

I don't know who set the password. I Someone had to do it. It could have been the result of a hacking, but I agree that that is what has happened.

Deleted a file by accident. Can you recommend


Deleting won't make your files deletedactually. They are just not visible but still in the hard drive which you savedthem at. You can rely on some data recovery programs to help you find themback. You can try Card Data Recovery. Just install this program on your computerand use the function "all recovery", after a while your deleted fileswill be back soon.

I cant start my computer because system32\driver\isanpn.sys is missing or corrupt


You need to replace that missing or corrupt system file. If you don't have your disk, you can borrow someone else's Windows XP disk (SP2) because you will need an XP disk to access the recovery console to replace isanpn.sys file.

Here's a link to the full steps on Microsoft's website to go to the recovery console and replace that file:

I deleted important files from my mp3 can i get them back


You can try this software. The trial version will search for and display the deleted files. So if it shows the file you want to recover, you may need to buy it to recover the files.

Girlfriend deleted sys files and now it says no operating sys. and it asks for a password, and we have never put in a password. is there a way to load a backed up copy of an identical cpu. since we dont...


There may be a Restore section on the hard drive. As I recall, you hit one of the function keys, like f12 or f11, while it's posting.

If you have an hp, compaq, or emachines, you can contact the company about a free replacement restore disk. Other OEM makers may help you out, too, if you can find a contact number.

If it's Dell, and you are the original buyer, same deal, if it's still under warranty. If not under warranty, they will charge you. If you are not the registered owner - good luck with that.

You can call MS with your hard luck story (or one more creative), and maybe, if you get a live person on the line, they will feel sorry for you and send you a complimentary disk (no kidding).

All these "free disks" cost about $25 for "shipping."
