If you see an error related to the wininet.dll file being deleted or missing, copy this file from the c:\windows\system32 directory of a working Win XP Pro or Win Vista computer onto a flashdrive, then use the following procedure to copy it onto the failing system.
At the boot screen (the first thing to appear at power-up), hit the F8 function key.
Select 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt' and continue.
In the command prompt window, type the letter of your flash drive, either d: or e: until the drive appears as e:> in the prompt window.
Type 'dir' to see the wininet.dll file on that flashdrive.
Once you see that file, type 'copy wininet.dll c:\windows\system32'.
Unplug the flashdrive and reboot the failing PC.
Once you succeed in reviving the failed computer, go to c:\windows\system32 and right click on the wininet.dll file then copy and paste it to a save name (recommended name: wininet-copy.dll). This allows direct copy of that file back into wininet.dll if the problem reoccurs.
If you suspect an anitvirus engine or some other application deleted this file - and if it occurs again, make note of what was being performed, immediately before the failure mode. This will lead you to the offending program needing attention.
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll. Please re-install a copy of the above file."
"<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt: Please re-install a copy of the above file."
"Cannot find \Windows\System32\hal.dll"
"Cannot find hal.dll"
The "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error displays shortly after the computer is first started. Windows XP has not yet fully loaded when this error message appears.
CauseCauses of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged hard drive.
Please let me know you have any further questions or concerns.
The error message you are getting is a result of a trojan virus that embedds itself in WININET.DLL.
Two simplest solutions:
1. If there is nothing important on the laptop that isn't already backed up, use your Dell install disks to re-install the computer.
2. If you have important files on the drive which are NOT backed up. Take it to a pro, or buy a 2.5" Hard drive enclosure, put your drive in the caddy and connect it to another computer that has an up to date virus scanner. Scan the drive for viruses and allow the virus scanner to clean all virus' it finds.
When that's done copy the files you need to the other computer and then Restore the laptop as per step 1. When it's up and running again, install a good virus scanner, then copy the files back to it from the other PC.
Here we go, just paste this site in your browser and download the dll. This should correct your problem: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcr71 http://www.instant-registry-fixes.org/how-to-fix-msvcr71dll-errors/ http://www.driverskit.com/dll/msvcr71.dll/2373.html
The error message refer to system files it cannot load dur to either corrupted or missing files.
You can try to do a repair with your Windows CD install disk and if this does not work you will need to reinstall Windows again together with any drivers that Windows didn't install and your programs.
Note you will lose you data in this process, hoped you backed up your files.
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..
