When my wife booted up her computer this morning, it came on and started to load as usual but then the screen went blue and this message was displayed: stop: c0000221 bad image checksum
the image kernel32dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

I tried booting in safe mode but eventually, it came back to this same screen.

The only function I can access is the off button when this screen is displayed.

Is there a fix?
