    First make sure it's there:

    C:\Window\System32\system.mdw

    is the usual place. If it is, save/copy it to a new place then copy one from
    another computer to replace the one which may be corrupt. If you still are
    getting an error message, you may need to restore the system.mdw from a
    backup.
