kernel error

when i try to boot

I get an error message that windows encountered a software error and that some kernel files are missing or damaged and something to do with dll,

What do you suggest ? using the recovery console or doing automatic recovery

does it say anything about corrupt or missing system32/config file?

ifso, you have a corrupt registry.

if checkdisk didn't work, try the last known good configuration

press F8 to get the boot menu and choose the relevant option

if that doesn't work i would think about doing a repair install

After doing a repair install, although most of your apps, drivers and user settings will still be in place, all windows updates, and possibly some utilities will need reinstalling anyway

Boot from the XP CD and at the first menu, press Enter to "setup windows xp now"

accept the EULA with F8, and it searches for existing windows installations

select your windows install from the list (if there's more then one) and press "R" to perform a repair install

if no windows installations are listed, or it does not give an option to press "R" to repair, you will have to do a full install

Back everything the hell up asap.

If by chance u run or need to run windo$e thru it`s "Repair" or recovery thing, it`s highly likely it will screw everything up.

My honest opinion of an OS such as windo$e that acts up in this fashion is forget u`r present install, back u`r shizzle up and re-install.

If u don`t do it now, whilst u have the chance to save u`r important stuffz, u may well have to further down the line.

In my experience a fixed windo$e install is like fixing a leaky pipe with scotch tape.
