After reading some hits for this error the most likely remedies seem to be:
1. System restore from the recovery console.
2. Using the recovery console to extract this file from the XP CD (and put it into c:\windows\system32).
3. A repair install of Windows XP.'

All of these assume you've got a valid Windows XP CD. Do you?
