Sudden Increae in windows/system32/config/system file missing error

We have seen over 30 customers in our Service Centers over the past three days or so who have been suffering from an error message that states their “windows/system32/config/system file is missing.” Typically, we would simply restore a backup copy of the system file and send them on their way. But the problem has taken a new twist recently.

It seems that the entire windows/system32/config/ folder is missing entirely. This folder stores information about your stored passwords, your registry, and your Windows profile. Without it you will not be able to reboot your computer, and there is no way to completely recover from this problem.
