The file is probably damaged somehow. If you have a boot disk, boot with it and when at the A:\ prompt, type Sys C: and it will reinstall the basic system files. Remove the floppy and reboot.

I hate to be the bearer of really bad tidings, but to be honest with you I have never seen this error posted and resolved short of a full fdisk (repartition) and reformat. It is usually an indication that the hard drive is thoroughly corrupt, either due to viral infection of disk failure.

But you can try the suggestion indicated, also covered in these two links:

If the operating system (Windows version) you are on is the same as the one with the problem, you can create a boot disk with in (go to Add/Remove programs)

Or you can download one from www.bootdisk.com
