Hi, I recently got a virus on my PC and inadvertently deleted a system
file when I ran a scan. Now, when I switch on my PC I get the
following message:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or
corrupt:

\windows\system32\c_850.nls

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the
original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start
repair".

Unfortunately, I bought my PC from my old company before it closed so
haven't got the original setup disk. I have borrowed one from a friend
but when I tried this I am taken the same screen with the message above.
I have tried using the F8 function but that just goes to the start up
screen and then back to the screen with the message. I have also used
'r' as suggested but this does the same. I have had a friend take a
look and he says the PC won't even go into BIOS mode, which I am not
sure exactly what this means. Has anyone got any suggestions how I can
repair my PC please?

Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
chelleyd.

If you know someone with the same version of winxp you could try copying
this file to a floppy, then boot your sys into the recovery consol. Then
copy from floppy to C:\windows\system32\
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;314058#XSLTH3124121123120121120120
for recovery consol info

The only other option I believe would be to buy a retail version of winxp,
which as you dont have one you will need at some stage anyway
