What is ntdll.dll?

The ntdll.dll file is a file created by Microsoft that has a description of "NT Layer DLL" and is the file that contains NT kernel functions.

This file is located in the c:\windows\system32 or c:\winnt\system32 directory and can also be found in the c:\i386 directory.
You using any mods or "trainers"?

It may just be corrupt. You can get it here I think.

Just be sure you put it in the right location.

Other then basic info I don't really see much for fixing it. One guy reformatted. That's allot to do though. Maybe you can replace it.
Seeing most .dll issues with downloded games and "cracked" .exe's.
But not all, one claims his messed up with a purchased and unmodded game.
Keep trying with the original .exe. Once it's working, then do the mods and things.

Not using any mods, using a cracked exe though, but i tried original and still the same problem. Guess i'm going to try to replace the ntdll.dll file.

One question though,

I tried deleting the file before and it says it is "in use." Replacing didn't work either because of the same reason. Do i have to boot into another OS, say linux or NTFS dos to replace the file?? Or will safe mode do the trick?? If i have to boot into another OS i'm gonna need some help.

Thanks
