    Hello. I’m trying to recover from a corrupted registry that is preventing my
    Windows XP Home edition from starting. I have the Microsoft article (307545)
    to help me. My problem is in part one of the of the four steps I need to
    take to fix it.

    At the C prompt in Recovery Console, I type in “md tmpâ€, as instructed. I
    get an error that says, “Access is deniedâ€. When Recovery Console starts, it
    doesn’t ask me for a password, it just shows the C prompt. How do I get
    around the “Access is denied†message?
    Thanks for your help!
