Error when booting up in XP Pro

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I have a Computer coming up with the following error:
First, the Windows XP screen appears.
Then, after about 30 seconds I get the blue screen blues:
      STOP: C000021(Bad Image Checksum)
      The image kernel32.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match to the     computed checksum.

Is this a hardware or software problem?
