How to recover from corrupted ntkrnlapa.exe in Windows Vista without data loss?

I have an Acer Aspire 4935G. After a Windows Update, I was prompted to restart. But when it was booting up again, it went into its Startup Recovery mode, and the error says that a boot critical file, ntkrnlpa.exe, was corrupted.

"See this article for downloading a Vista Recovery disk : ""How to Make a Windows Vista Repair Disk If You Don’t Have One"".

You can then use your most recent Restore point to rollback your computer to a time that it still booted ok. See the following article for instructions: ""Using Windows 7 or Vista System Restore"" (and where I found the reference to the first article).

You may use first Molly's suggestion to save your data, of course, since these kind of operations are dangerous."
