Missing aiqmml.dll

I'm running windows xp and my antivirus program deleted my copy of the aiqmml.dll file on the grounds that it was corrupt. The only programs affected are those that come with microsoft office and even those are hardly affected. The problem is, on start up of my computer, every single piece of software installed will complain about the missing file, despite its apparent insignificance.
I have lost the install disks (my computer isn't exactly new) so their use is not an option for me.

Is there somewhere I can get hold of this one file safely?

I had a look for similar threads before and I found that one. Unfortunately, that is not the .dll file I'm missing.
I'm missing aiqmml.dll. I haven't the slightest idea what it does though...

you will need to run sfc /scannow...
if you don't have a xp cd you will have to borrow one from a friend or coworker...
it has to be the same flavor of xp you have installed...IE: if you have xp pro...the one you borrow has to be xp pro


To do this click on start...run...then type in...sfc /scannow
NOTE the single space before the /

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.

for vista...
go to the run box and type in cmd
instead of hitting the Enter key press Ctrl+Shift + Enter You will be prompted with the obnoxious User Account Control dialog… but it will then open up a command prompt in Administrator mode...then type in sfc /scannow

NOTE THE SINGLE SPACE BEFORE THE /

or


If you don't have Windows CD...

click on Start... then Run
type in regedit and press enter

Navigate to the following key...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries Values on the right hand side.

you want ... SourcePath

It has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D and that is why it is asking for the XP CD.
we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.

Now reboot your computer and try sfc /scannow again...

Does it really take all that just to replace one file?

If so, I'll have to deal with that tomorrow I guess...

I changed the sourcepatch drive as you said but scannow is still asking for a CD.

That's going to be a lot of trouble then. Are you sure I can't just get a replacement .dll file?

That filename shows no hit on Google. It's definitely not part of XP. I recommend you download and run Autoruns. Press escape when it first opens up. Click on Options, Hide Microsoft and Windows Entries. Click the refresh icon and see if it is listed there under Everything. Post a screenshot of it on your next post.

I tried there already, it doesn't have it.

Here's the info skifxr requested:

The lack of any information about the file seems dodgey when everything else had atleast the publisher.

Untick the check box and reboot. See what happens.

That hasn't solved the minor issues I've been having with Word (highlighting and typing does not replace the highlighted text)but it has replaced the storm of error messages with a single one (apparently I'm missing another .dll but I didn't catch the name).
