Eek. That computer has SP1 or did I look wrong?

Well, since we have the CD handy anyway
Use this command to extract the original from the CD:

expand wininet.dl_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\WININET.dll

I just found that you need to specify the full path to the file to be expanded.
So assuming your CDRom drive is D:

That should have read:

expand D:\I386\wininet.dl_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\WININET.dll

Change the letter according to your setup.

And the _ is not a typo it's actually named that way when compressed.

The del command was performed without problems?

If so try:

COPY D:\I386\wininet.dl_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\WININET.dl_

That will copy the file to the destinationfolder without expanding it.
It can be expanded after reboot, but this will only work if the other file is gone.

LOL
Yeah I told my boss I broke his machine or that it might explode later when he looked at all the command lines in the console. Thanks so much for the help mate. I'll try and keep him from breaking it again ;)
