    you need to get ahold of the original NTOSKRNL.EXE file and put it in your c:\windows\system32\ folder that should fix the problem and put the original pic on the boot screen.

    If it was bootxp you might also have to edit your boot.ini.
    Right click my computer/properties/advanced/startup & recovery/settings/Edit.
    Get rid of everything after /fastdetect. (That's if you have not edited the boot.ini yourself) You can make a copy of it just to be sure. Reboot when you have done it.

    If it is then this will restore the original.

    I seem to have lost the association for this file. Anybody know what it is?
