Hi,

How can I reinstall wininet.dll ? As of now when I start computer I just get my desktop and wallpaper and then the errror message comes up "This application has failed to start because Wininet.dll was not found, reinstalling the application mayfix this problem"

I have no start button so I can not access anything.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Dave

After the error message can you press ctrl + alt + del keys together, this should give you task manager, click file, new task, type explorer.exe then press enter

If you reinstall XP you will lose programmes and files

If you repair XP from the link you will keep programmes and files
