"windows/system32/config/system corrupt or missing"

Got this error msg on boot up for the third time this year, last two
times
I had backups of reg hives on restore folder, So I fixed with them.
This time they're not. This time the original file was corrupted, it
was on a bad sector, I repaired it using Norton Disk Doctor. But still

system doesn't boot up. What can I do (other than replacing the file
from a file off 'Repair' folder) ?

Your hard drive is probably failing. Test it with a diagnostic utility
downloaded from the drive mftr.'s website. You'll make a bootable cd or
floppy with the file. Boot with the media you created and do a thorough
test of the hard drive. If the drive fails any physical tests, replace
it.

After you get it repaired take a look at this. There is some underlying
problem causing the registry corruption.
