Important: Recovering a deleted copy of iertutil.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
first of all we need to know what operating system ur using......
iam presuming ur using XP....
have you tried copying user32.dll back to the c:\Windows\System32
directory from the XP disk, another computer, or parallel install of
XP? If you can get to Safe Mode or Even Safe Mode Command
Prompt you may aslo be able to run "sfc /scannow" at the prompt and get
Windows to check all of it's system drivers and replace any that are
if ur not able to access through safe mode
if you are making it to the boot menu options you may try "Last Known
Good Configuration" or something like that... if you are unable to get
that to work either then you best bet is probably to try and run the
Recovery Console from the XP CD. If that doesn't work you could try
messing around with either booting XP Pre from a boot CD and copying
files to wherever you need, or installing a parallel copy of XP,
booting to that and copying files to your old copy. You can also try
installing over the top of the existing XP but that would be my last
effort as it could permanently destroy data you might be trying to keep.
if it still doesnt work I think you may be looking at a re-install if your system is that messed up.
