Hi Guys, Basically some twit was messing about with the ntdll.dll file in the windows/system32 folder. He changed the name to nghghjfdll.dll of something like that, but basically the computer won't run now. Starting up windows will not work as it just restarts after getting the the window icon bit. Safe mode won't start as it needs ntdll to run. inserting the Windows XP disc won't work as when the CD boots up and it loads all the files, a blue screen with this will come up: Stop : c000021 unknown hard error \ systemroot \ system 32 \ ntdll.dll

So, how can i get xp to run again guys? i can't get into xp or m-dos or anything! i have access to another laptop with internet, cd rewriter and 8gb flash drive? thanks guys!
