Corrupt Registry

I can not start windows. It says: winxp/system32/config/system is missing a
file or is corrupt. My question is: what can be the cause of this corruption
on a fresh install with all updatesand required drivers in place. Is it
hardware or software related? I use True Image so I was up and running in no
time, but I'm truely concerned as to why it happened in the first place.

Your comments will be greatly appreciated...

Thanks for the responses, but I've already been to these sites. I was hoping
for a first hand reply from someone who has "been there". :)

I've found such corruption to be most often caused by hardware issues,
with defective or even over-heated RAM being a leading cause.
