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

Try turning off hyperthreading (especially if it's an HP box)
Try 'Last Known Good'

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

Great tip about the ms updates!
