Can you go back to an earlier time with restore point? That would be the easiest way to overcome this issue. If you run Advanced System Care or any good quality Registry Cleaner then remove the Malware that is giving you the problem.

HAL.DLL is missing or corrupted, xp doesn't boot

if it was running for more than 30 hours, it wasn't doing much. You can try copying hal.dll off of a known, good-working XP pc, and replace it with the one on your broken PC. It's better if you extract it from i386 folder but grabbing it from another pc should work fine.

The issue is the result of a change of the USERINIT key in the registry under the following registry key:

to do this you will need a bartPE or other cd that is bootable and will give you access to the NTFS files system and the registry. One is the Ultimate Boot CD:

First I used knoppix to check whether userinit.exe exists in C:/windows/system32, it was there. Then I checked explorer.exe to be there in C:/windows. Then I tried to copy an userinit.exe / explorer.exe of my pc to this pc but this did not solve the problem.
Then I tried to logon remotely to the registry without success.
Finally I used an unix regedit tool to check the registry (used 2nd option under In the registry everything was fine, pointing to "C:/Windows/system32/userinit.exe,".
I also checked permissions on these files with knoppix, everything fine.

Finally I got it working by doing the following:
1) copying C:/Windows/system32/userinit.exe to C:/Windows/system32/userinitnew.exe
2) using tool from above to edit registry and set the winlogon value to point to userinitnew.exe

Hey helpful people!! My Acer laptop has a similar problem:" Userinit logon application" This program is closing down. Now the laptop is on BUT the START MENU is NOT AVAILABLE. Can someone out there post a...

You've got the wrong entry in your registry.
Userinit string should be:

Note the trailing comma which must be there.
Often this entry is damaged by malware.

Ways to deal with this:

  1. Install Windows on a second partition, load the damaged registry hive and fix it.
  2. Boot with a Bart's PE or ERD Commander and fix the registry entry.
Or if you manage to get the register editor running just fix the registry key.

In the register you have to go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon

Find the line named: Userinit
Make sure it points to: C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,

If it doesn't exist, make one, if it doesn't point to the same place, change it.

Startup issue

Ok, that rules out the problem some systems with an AMD processor have with SP3.

Before we try anything else, unplug the computer, remove the battery and leave it like this for a few minutes. But the battery back, plug it in and try it.

If that does not work you will need you windows CD.
Put it in the drive & boot to the CD
You need to press R and go to the recovery console
type chkdsk /r
If this does not work, repeat and this time type fixboot
