sasuninst.exe breaks system

Recommended Posts

There is something strange in SASUNINST.EXE util.

I used it to remove SUPERantiSpyWare from Windows2000.

After rebooting system hangs with "Windows could not start because the

following file is missing or corrupt:

\WINNT\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM "

This was the second time in a couple of months.

Unfortunately I didn't remember the first time

and backup all the related files before using the util again.

Perhaps I thought that it was just a coincidence on the

first time.

Now what?

You've got issues with the registry if you're receiving that error message. I'd recommend testing for hardware stability by running memtest86+ for 12-24 hours, and if it passes run StressPrime for another 12 hours.

You can use Erunt for doing regular backups of the registry: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download1267.html
