STOP: C0000221 bad image checksum n RPCRT4.DLL

Late yesterday afternoon (literally at the end of the day when I could do
nothing about it), my Windows XP Professional machine suddenly would not
come up after a reboot. I have the following error message:

"STOP: C0000221 {Bad Image Checksum} The image rpcrt4.dll is possibly
corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum."

What do I do now?

One follow-up. I am using the Microsoft Windows OneCare product on that
machine, which is in beta. Does Windows OneCare do anything at all with the
rpcrt4.dll? Could it be Windows OneCare which has corrupted that file?

Another follow-up.

I tried to repair the Windows XP installation, but that didn't work. I
copied the rpcrt4.dl_ file from off of my Dell computer's OS disk and tried
to expand it. The expansion did not work, so I decided to just wipe the
hard drive clean and reinstall the OS. I did that, and then I was able to
get to the Windows desktop. I was not, however, able to reach the network.
Using the Device Manager I discovered that my PC's Ethernet Controller was
bad, and since that is on the motherboard, the motherboard had to be
replaced.

This makes me wonder, is it possible that some sort of hardware failure such
as my PC had, could have corrupted the rpcrt4.dll file?
