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.

  1. At the boot screen (the first thing to appear at power-up), hit the F8 function key.
  2. Select 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt' and continue.
  3. 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.
  4. Type 'dir' to see the wininet.dll file on that flashdrive.
  5. Once you see that file, type 'copy wininet.dll c:\windows\system32'.
  6. 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.

Good luck, hope this helps.

It has a Windows file missing (and usually many others). The most common reason is hard disk failure. When Windows files just start to disappear, it is usually a sign that the drive is dying. It can also be caused by virus activity, but it is rare if you have a good antivirus package. It would pay to get the hard disk checked.

simply insert a windows install disc into the laptop and restart it. you should get a prompt telling you an operating system disc has been detected, and how you wish to proceed. you can either attempt to fix with a the repair tool, or reinstall windows.

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..
