I would recommend booting the laptop with a Windows XP CD and select "Recovery Console" option

Then once in the Recovery Console type the following CHKDSK C: /R

That will run the Check Disk (CHKDSK) utility and will probably fix your problem so that the files can be copied during the recovery process..

NOTE: THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT... Once you start the CHKDSK utility with the /R option
you must let it complete the task... And depending on the size of your drive it could take several hours to complete ..(even if it appears to be "stuck" it is NOT ...) When CHKDSK finds a bad sector it will then attempt to move the data to a good sector so that it can be used again (And this takes time even on the fastest PC's) And interrupting the process can possibly cause your drive to become unusable depending on what stage it was one and what it was doing. (And of course if it has been days or something and it hasn’t moved even a notch then of course go ahead and reboot it. But if it’s been just a few hours then LEAVE IT ALONE)

After CHKDSK utility is finished you should see some sort of message on the screen saying "CHKDSK found errors on the volume and fixed them all" or something like that. And you should be back at the command prompt. Just remove the XP cd from your drive and type "EXIT" and that’s it

You should now be able to restart your restore operation again and hopefully it will be able to recover that file..

NOTE: There are some occurrences where CHKDSK is unable to recover a file completely but this is very rare. (if that happens then let me know and we can move to the next step. But from the way it sounds your drive has errors that must be fixed before you can proceed..)

I hope this info helps

On my windows 7 gateway laptop I am receiving the message "the ordinal 572 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll. I ran a cmd scan and did not find anything. Any suggestions?

How To Fix Iertutil.dll Errors

Important: Do not download iertutil.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of iertutil.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source. Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the iertutil.dll error.
  1. Restore iertutil.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" iertutil.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it. If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted iertutil.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover iertutil.dll with a free file recovery program.
    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.

My computer keep showing dciman32.dll

That is some corrupt files in action. Reinstall your Operating System (Windows) or install a new one (Linux). Make sure to back up any files that you have before reinstalling, as files will not be preserved during the process.

My laptop was turned of during an recovery point[system restore]

Try doing a system restore from a previous retore point. However, you will not be able to recover any files that were saved after that point.
If all else fails, you may have to reinstall the OS. The "wininet.dll" file may be from some software you installed at a later point..
