I am running windows xp professional on a Dell Dimension 8400. I recently had malware removed (Thanks Charles) and now have some windows type issues. The main problem is when booting the system, I get the following message:

windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
<windows root>\system32\hal.dll
Please re-install a copy of the above file.

Can anyone please tell me how to do that?
