How to take care of startup problem?

I suspect that the message actually says the the file isn't "relocatable" and this sounds like an older Win3.1 dll. Try, first, visiting the Windows Update page at Microsoft and see if the applet there discovers it. I doubt that it will, but it's an easy first step. If this doesn't help, run Sysedit and check for any mention of this file. If you find one, comment that line out and reboot. It could be something added by some older software you've recently added. If not, try renaming the file to something like w32skrnl.old and reinstall Windows.

It would be helpful to know more about the system - was it upgraded from Win3.x, have you installed anything prior to this occuring, are you running an virus checker? There's no such thing as too much info when trying to diagnose a Windows PC! Feel free to email me with any addition data...

it is a windows system file that control the kernel ( memory) there is no way to load this file by it's self, it would require a format - fdisk the drive- and reinstall your OS- you can also try to erase your windows system files and reload over itto fix the error-
hope this helps.
