I have no idea how this happened. SInce i don't remember Wininet.dll being infested by virus or being deleted.
Basically what happened is that after my computer starts up and reaches the welcome screen, a box popped up and says "this application has failed to start because WININET.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
I can't run internet explorer. My desktop doesn't appear. I dont know what to do here.
Can someone please help me? I would greatly appreciate it.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

For your desktop not showing up, open task manager. Is explorer.exe there?

If it isn't, go to:

File > New task > explorer.exe

If it wasn't there, is it now?
