Hello. Iâ€™m trying to recover from a corrupted registry that is preventing my\nWindows XP Home edition from starting. I have the Microsoft article (307545)\nto help me. My problem is in part one of the of the four steps I need to\ntake to fix it.\n\nAt the C prompt in Recovery Console, I type in â€œmd tmpâ€, as instructed. I\nget an error that says, â€œAccess is deniedâ€. When Recovery Console starts, it\ndoesnâ€™t ask me for a password, it just shows the C prompt. How do I get\naround the â€œAccess is deniedâ€ message?\nThanks for your help!
