you could use the recovery console to try and replace the corrupt file. Or Run a repair on your current installation.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try turning off hyperthreading (especially if it's an HP box)
Try 'Last Known Good'
Microsoft gives free support with network down issues related to updates.

I ended up replacing ntdll.dll from an image and it fixed it.  

Great tip about the ms updates!
