How do you fix this error; " 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." ?

Actually, forget about downloading the DLL.

Do you have your Windows XP disk? You might have to do a repair installation.

Check out DLL-files.com. You also can scan for related hal.dll errors if you want.
