On boot up I get this message:
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Windows root>\system 32\hal.dll.
Please re-install a copy of the above file."

Efforts to bootup from the XP installation disk have failed.
Efforts to reset the bootup sequence haven't worked.

I was attempting to remove a persistent piece of malware by having BCWipe shred it at bootup.
That was the last time I used my desktop!
I appreciate any assistance available to repair the damage caused.
Thank you.
