I downloaded a custom startup screen exe from ThemeXP.com and it's become a major problem for my HP Mini 1000 netbook. I don't want to be lectured about the whole "replacing .exe files in the system32 folder" problem, it'll never happen again if I get this fixed. After restarting, Windows seems to be corrupt. Instead of booting, it claims that NTFS.sys is missing and must be replaced. I would replace this but for several reasons I cannot do anything. The hard drive uses ZIF connectors so I can't hook it up to my desktop to fix it, I don't have the original XP CD's to run a repair to replace NTFS.sys... am I missing something here? I'm very frustrated with myself and with my laptop.
On a side note I installed Chromium OS on my thumb drive and now it's convinced that it's 250MB instead of the proper 16GB, even after reformatting. What can I do to fix this nuisance?
Any ideas with either of those 2 problems?
p.s. The two applications in question are NTOSKRNL.exe and LOGINUI.exe, both in the system32 folder. The only problem file seems to be NTFS.sys but we'll see what happens if I get that fixed...
