I am new here. Hello all.

I have researched regarding the bastard Anti Virus XP 2008 and am now suffering extensively with the virus. So much so that my computer was completely messed. Even using my browser the URLs would redirect to advertising harvests, by American Domain Registrars.

I managed to Google you guys and used the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware MBAM. It said it found 32 errors and include the Anti Virus 2008 registries. I then clicked restart.


The computer now will not even restart, even in safe mode, most recent mode, safe mode with networking, no luck. It displays the following very quickly. It mentions an INI error and boot message then prompts out:

"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."

I already tried http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314477 reading on Windows.

I took it to the computer store today and found it cannot be repaired according to them and would need formatting. And I would loose everything.

Can anyone help me please?

welcome to bleepingcomputer


I am surprised the computer store didn't try a repair disk, they probably are too lazy and inexperienced

ps, it's not hackers that infected your computer, it's the guy sitting in the chair, been there and done that

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
