Boot failure - Message says can'Windowssystem32ntoskrnl.exe

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

Windows could not start because the following file is
missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.

This problem occures after the desktop has been turned off
for a while. Repeated boot attempts will get Windows
started and everything runs fine. Running Pentium 4, 3,2
GHz, mother board Intel D875PBZ.

Does anyone understand this problem?

    Sounds like you might have a problem with the registry.
    Win Xp is supposed to repair the registry on boot up.
