Hello DES315...

I know of no Windows restore disk available on this website, unless you mean RC.iso...which does not contain Windows system files other than those needed to access Recovery Console.

You'll need a genuine Windows XP disk to work the repair on your system.

From your local software shop!!

Or alternatively u can download the file from http://www.dll-files...s.shtml?wininet

No guarantees that copying the above file will work

Windows errors related to wininet.dll?

wininet.dll is a module that contains Internet-related functions used by Windows applications.

Note: wininet.dll is a process which the Troj/Zlob-AO trojan tries to disguise itself as under the true process name of %systemroot%\mscornet.exe. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system

Actual file or task name:
wininet.dll

File type:
This is a DLL program file.

File or folder location:
This will be found in your system32 folder, at c:\windows\system32\


If u find the same file in the location then
  • See whether its a hidden system file
  • Then Right Click the file and select properties
  • Select the version Tab
  • see if the Company Name is given as Microsoft
  • If yes, then ur version is right.
  • If not, then u might have to delete it


Note:
There might not be any hidden system files in a clean install of windows. Esp .exe files and .dll inside windows\system32\ folder other than dllcache
