    ntkrnlpa.exe missing PLEASE HELP

    Hi, my sons laptop is running vista, some reason it just came up with \windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe is missing.
    i did not make a reboot disc (silly me i know now) i have tried to do a complete reboot from start but im still getting the same message

    what can i do as i did buy a reboot disc from some one on ebay but that dont seem to do any thing.

    PLEASE PLEASE can some one help, i have read other similar posts but they dont seem to work as all i have is the start up screen and it just keeps going round and round in circles.

    I would try the procedure included in this excellent tutorial
    Extract Files from Vista Installation DVD

    If you do not have an installation DVD, boot in safe mode and see if you can get to system restore. If you can, try to go back before the problem

    Thanks but it wont even boot in safe mode, i choose that option all i get is a black screen saying that the file is missing or corrupt? and it just goes round and round in circles what ever i choose.

    If i buy a new windows vista or 7 cd will it install then?

    This should allow you to go back to the way the computer was the day you bought it. <You will have to upadate, make your own settings, create favorites and documents again. Good luck and Happy Holidays
