Have you installed service pack 1, an updated version of this file was
included in sp1.

If not, then do so, and it should fix the problem.

If you have installed sp1, then a copy of this file should be in
\windows\servicepackfiles\i386

Go into \windows\system32\dllcache and rename the sfcfiles.dl to
sfcfiles.bak
Now go into \windows\system32 and do the same thing.
Now windows file protection should kick in, it can't replace the file from
the dllcache folder because you renamed it, so it should look to the
servicepackfiles folder, if you didnt have sp1 installed, it would prompt
for the installation cd .

Hi.

sfcfiles.dll is the Windows library file used to verify system files validity. If you get this message, it means that Windows system files are corrupted, and the system cannot access system files that manage the personal settings page.

When this happen the system should be reinstalled.

Before reinstalling the whole Windows, try booting from Windows XP install disk and choose Repair Windows when prompted.

Before performing any other operation do a complete backup of all your data.

Yes it may be possible, installing and updating antivirus may have figured our corruption in urlmon.dll deleted the file or did some changes due to which you are getting the critical error

You can try 2 things,

1. Restore earlier settings, which may uninstall your antivirus and you need to install again. But if this works recommend you to first scan the system with free standalone antivirus availalable and then install your version of antivirus. Try following link

2. Repair the URLMON.DLL file

1.Insert your Windows XP CD in your CD-ROM drive and boot your computer from the CD.
2.When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to open the Recovery Console.
3.When prompted for an administrator password, type the password and then press Enter. In case no administrator password was set, just press Enter.
4.At the Command Prompt, type the following command and press Enter
cd %systemroot%\system32
5.Next, type the following command to rename the urlmon.dll file and press Enter.
ren urlmon.dll urlmon.old.dll
6.Now, to restore the original urlmon.dll, type the following command and press Enter.
expand [CD drive letter]:\i386\urlmon.dll %systemroot%\system32 /Y
7.Next, type exit and press Enter.
8.Restart your computer.

3. Repair complete OS. You will need XP CD

You cannot see HD because there are no apropriate SATA drivers included in windows XP CD. So you need to create custom windows XP installation CD

To install windows XP in that laptop u will need to create custom windows XP CD, how will you do that:

  1. Download nlite from http://www.nliteos.com/
  2. Download drivers for that laptop
  3. Download service pack 3 for windows XP
  4. Install nlite for windows XP and run
  5. Follow instructions and include SP3 for XP, all the drivers for laptop and create ISO Image
  6. Burn ISO Image
  7. Install Windows XP
  8. Good Luck

Blue screen on start-up saying 'stop: c000007b bad image' etc


The odds are, you will need to replace the HDD. Best odds for data recovery are to get a new drive and a universal HDD adapter (here is an example: http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Adapter-2-5IN-3-5IN-Sata/dp/B000QY9KIS)

Reinstall you operating system on the new drive then connect the old drive via the adapter and see if you can access the files you want to retrieve.

If that doesn't work, then you'll likely need to consult an expert like Drivesavers 800-440-1904 and see if you can afford a recovery of the data

Blue screen on start-up saying 'stop: c000007b bad image' etc


Errr...sounds like fun.

OK well I would stop trying to get Windows back in working condition until after you backup your files.

The easiest way is to remove the hard drive from the system and place it into a usb enclosure.

Backup the files and then reinstall windows.

If you try the band-aid method you'll just end up wasting your time.

Hope this helps.

Stop: C0000135{unable to locate component}


I believe that definitely your hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced. Also going by what you are saying here, your cd rom could be bad. If it is still working though, then most likely the reason that your computer isn't finding it or cannot boot from it, is because, due to your hard drive being bad, your computer cannot access the drivers to your cd, thus making it undetectable. Thanks
