Operating System XP Professional.

Received a pop-up regarding spyware on my desktop. Ran Spybot and AVG to remove it. Afterwards winint.dll file was missing. Found it in AVG virus vault with virus attached. Unhealable. Tried to recover using system restore by going back to an earlier date. That failed.

I keep getting a message to reload using original disk. Unforntunately the machine came with XP pre-loaded and I do not have disks.

How to I restore winint.dll back on my system.

Thank you.
