You are going to have to use the restore/recovery process to get past this. The virus corrupted a major file and now it wont boot. I hope you made backups.

How can i reinstall the ntoskrnl.exe when it is corrupt


Assuming a couple of things:
1. Your OS is Windows XP
2. This is the error message you are getting -
"Windows NT could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Winnt_root\System32\Ntoskrnl.exe
Please re-install a copy of the above file."

To reinstall notskrnl.exe, do this:
  • Start the computer by using your Windows XP CD-ROM. Press any key to boot from the CD.
  • After the setup files are finished loading press R to repair using Recovery Console.
  • When you are in the recovery console, select the installation to log on to (usually number 1), and then press ENTER.
  • Login to the Administrator account by typing the password for this account, and then press ENTER.
  • At the recovery console command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    For Uni-Processor systems: expand <cd-drive>:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ <hd-drive>:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    For Multi-Processor systems:expand <cd-drive>:\i386\ntkrnlmp.ex_ <hd-drive>:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    Note In these two commands, the <cd-drive> placeholder represents the drive letter of your CD drive, and the <hd-drive> placeholder represents the drive letter of the hard disk on which windows is installed.
  • If you receive a prompt to overwrite the file, press Y.
  • Type exit, and press ENTER at the command prompt.
  • You should now be able to boot up properly.

    On screen message telling me windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt- &lt;windows root&gt;\system32\hal.dll. Laptop does not start or boot properly


    Time to get out that restore disc you made when you first got your laptop. The boot sector has errors. Boot with your rescue disc and run CHKDSK/F to clear the errors.
    Hope that helps.

    While launching, the following message appears to me Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe Please re-install a copy of...


    You will require a copy of that file so :
    Load your windows install disk and follow the prompts until a menu offers you a choice to repair your disc. Go for that and it should fix your problem by replacing all of the files that the system requires to run again.
    Just placing a copy of the lost file will not allways work, but that file name doesn't ring a bell. Are you sure you haven't got a virus in there somewhere? Running a good antivirus programme would be a good idea if you haven't allready used an up to date one.
    Hope this helps.

    Keep getting this message <window


    Hello,
    • "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
      <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
      Please re-install a copy of the above file."

    • "<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:
      Please re-install a copy of the above file."

    • "Cannot find \Windows\System32\hal.dll"

    • "Cannot find hal.dll"
    The "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error displays shortly after the computer is first started. Windows XP has not yet fully loaded when this error message appears. CauseCauses of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged hard drive.

      Please let me know you have any further questions or concerns.
    Thanks.

    Missing <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.


    Yes, if you do run the recovery disk, it will reinstall windows and the bundled software package, thus removing all of your personal data on the computer. I would highly recommend picking up an external notebook hard drive enclosure, so that you can remove the hard drive from the laptop, and plug it via usb in another computer, so that you may begin the backup process. Unfortunately with those kinds of error messages that you get, the only real cure is to reinstall the entire OS (provided that your hard drive is also intact, it may not be a half bad idea, to try and run SeaTools for Windows (or DOS) on your laptop's hard drive to make sure it's not failing).
