stop error on RPCRT4.dll after installing MS virus

I had the worm virus and installed the microsoft update last night. Upon rebooting XP (home) starts to load and then I get the following message :
STOP : C0000221 (Bad image checksum)
The image RPCRT4.DLL is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum

The PC then will do nothing further.

Can anyone help with this ?
All assistance gratefully received and much appreciated

Can you get in to Safe Mode?

I had never tried 'safe mode' on XP but last night tried bootingh from the XP cd and was then able to get into the 'Windows Recovery Console' which appeared to just give me access to a DOS style prompts in C:\windows.

Is that what you mean or is there some other way of entering safe mode when running XP

(excuse my ignorance)

When XP starts booting then start tapping F8. You'll get a menu. Choose Safe Mode.

If you can get in to Safe Mode then try to do a System Restore.

I would then redownload the patch and install again (create another restore point first though)

Thanks for that. Sorry to be dim but how do I do initiate a system restore ?

This is where i get lost now. i don't use SR (prefer Goback) and i'm not entirely sure if it'll work in Safe Mode.

I'm looking for you now...

Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.

Or go into Help, type System Restore in the box and it will provide a link.
