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..

Windows xp hard reset


This is what you manual said to do, unfortunately most times the Recovery does not work. I prefer a clean install over recover because I don't get all the unwanted programs.
Instructions from Manual below:
Turn off the computer. If necessary, press and hold
the On button until the computer turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the
computer, except the monitor, keyboard, and
mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn on the computer.
4 Immediately, when you see the initial company
logo screen appear, press the F11 key on your
keyboard repeatedly until the Recovery Manager
window appears.
5 Click Advanced options.
6 In the Advanced options window, click System
recovery, and then Next.
7 Click No to back up files (if you have already
done so), and then click Next.
System recovery begins. After system recovery is
complete, the computer restarts.

Have you tried doing a System Restore to a restore point (date and time) before you started having problems?
A clean fresh install of windows might be your only and best option.

Emachines t5274 vertical blue lines during startup/XP.


It looks like you've got two issues. If you tried a different monitor and it too have vertical blue lines your video card might be bad, but hold that thought. I'm thinking you need to reload the operating system because you can't boot all the way up which is the second issue.

Have you tried to boot up in Safe Mode and do a System Restore? Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. When it boots, if it boots successfully things will look different in Safe Mode. The screen will be darker and icons bigger, but that's normal. If you get into the desktop successfully, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. If the system tells you that you have no restore points, then you will have to either Reload the Operating System or do a System Recovery. By the way, System Restore does not lose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, or programs unless the program was installed after the restore date. System Recovery LOSES EVERYTHING, it sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

I want to reboot my entire system so it starts from scratch, how do I do this?


If your system does have a recovery partition (typically says press f11 for recovery during boot if you have one) Reboot the pc, press f11 during the asus screen. The system restore utility will guide you through the rest.

If your system does not have a recovery partition
Take your system restore or operating system disc, Put it in the cdrom, reboot the computer.

When your pc starts back up (during the asus logo screen) During this screen there is usually a key sequence you can press to pop up the alternate boot menu. Typically the key is esc, f8 or f10. If one of those is right it will bring up a second menu asking what to boot from, select your cdrom. The cd will boot and your system restore disc will guide you through the rest..

I want to restore my emachines desktop to its factory settings. Can this be done with our the disk.


There is a couple things you can do. if you have lost the recovery cd's in case the computer came wiht them. do a system restore back to the last restore point shown.

or purchase the recovery disks.

if you've decided to use System Restore to revert your system to a previous state, start the System Restore Wizard and follow the prompts. To use the System Restore Wizard, make sure you're logged on as an administrator, and then follow these steps:


1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.


however; if you pc did not comes with the recovery cd's. then it is possible there is a recovery image of windows residing on the D:\ drive partition of your hard drive. so, when you turn on you pc you should be given an option something like PRESS F10 for Setup.

then press F10 you will have options on how to recover the PC to factory defaults.

hope this help

How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.


Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.

Windows vista wont load


Hi I believe that wouldn't be a problem. If you want to do a system recovery, the laptop usually comes with a back up partition where all the files to do system recovery is stored. You can use these files to restore the setting back to the point when you first purchased the item.

REMEMBER: All your datas will be erased when you do the System Recovery.
For me guide you on have to access the files, I need the make and model of your laptop.

NOTE: If the RECOVERY or FACTORY_IMAGE partitions on the hard drive have been deleted OR the files in these partitions have been deleted, these steps will not work. You must use recovery discs.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. Turn on the computer and immediately press the F11 key repeatedly , about once every second, until Recovery Manager opens.
  4. Click Next .
    A Microsoft System Restore screen opens.
  5. Select No, I would like to see other options , and then click Next .
    A System recovery screen opens.
  6. Click Yes , and Next to continue the recovery process.
    The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. To do so, read Backing up your files .
  7. To continue recovery, select No , and then click Next .
    A recovery progress screen opens. Wait while files are restored.
  8. When System Recovery is complete, click Finish
  9. The computer restarts and continues into Windows setup.
  10. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.
  11. Turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
  12. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
  13. Reinstall any software applications that were added after purchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.
Please rate this solution.
