YYou could find a copy of that file in another XP installation and introduce it into Ubuntu from a USB stick then use Linux to put it in place, overwriting the original but it may not be the only file that's failing.

While you have a Linux dual-boot, take the chance to remove all your personal files from the XP system to a place of safety in case it fails completely.
