ntoskrnl.exe corrupt?

  cheechman 19:26 21 Oct 2007

My laptop is displaying the following message

"Windows could not start because the following files is missing or corrupt: Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.

Please re-install a copy of the above file.

I've located the file off another machine hoping to copy it but I can't get to a command prompt...

Prior to the message the machine was running extremely slowly.

Any ideas please. I did a search but couldn't find previous topics.
