I recently had a message that said "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \Windows\System\vgaoem.fon"

Using the recovery console from the cd and help from past issues from this site, I was able to reinstall this file.

Then it said "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system32\drivers\isapnp.sys"

Again, using the recovery console from the cd and help from past issues from this site, I was able to reinstall this file.

Now it reads "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys"

I tried using these instructions:

cd system32
ren ntkrnlpa.exe ntkrnlpa.old
ren ntoskrnl.exe ntoskrnl.old
cd "c:\windows\driver cache\i386"
expand sp2.cab -F:ntkrpamp.exe c:\windows\system32
expand sp2.cab -F:ntkrnlmp.exe c:\windows\system32
cd c:\windows\system32
ren ntkrpamp.exe ntkrnlpa.exe
ren ntkrnlmp.exe ntoskrnl.exe

The screen still reads: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys"

I'm not sure if there is anything more I can do.

I'm thinking the culprit of this issue is SpyBot.

Please help

Howdy and welcome to GTG:

Boot using your XP cd and go past the Recovery Console and to the "Repair Option".

You will have to re-install and Service Packs and critical updates after repair has finished.

Thanks for responding,

Do you mean using chkdsk /r in the recovery console or something else?

No, I said go past the Recovery Console. You will get a different "R" option. That will be to do a REPAIR of XP.

I guess I'm not understanding what you are talking about. Please explain.
