I restarted my computer after downloading some automatic security updates, and when I came back into my room the screen was black with some white text that read:

windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt system32\drivers\Ntfs.sys

It also says I can try repairing it by reinstalling everything, but I don't know where the CDs that came with my computer are.

Is there anything I can do to fix it? I'm not good with computers but I can follow directions. I don't have the money to have it fixed by someone else right now, so I really need to do this at home, with somebodies help.

Heads up <looks up , ahhhhh)

Hey here is something i took from another forum lol:

Missing or Corrupt system32\drivers\ntfs.sys


after checking connections around my hard disk drives i turned my computer back on and up comes this message:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:


You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD-ROM
Select "r" at the first screen to start repair.

Upon putting the xp disc in, it boots to the cd, and it looks at my hardware configuration and the Windows Setup blue screen appears to tell me

File setupdd.sys could not be loaded. The error code is 4. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.

Please help! perhaps the casing that holds the drives and floppy was shaken? i've checked to make sure everything is in place.
