Everytime I boot up my pc I get a message about the "dnsapi.dll" not being found as a popup on the desktop. It happened yesterday after my computer froze and I restarted it. I ran the repair cd that came with the computer to try and fix it but it didn't help. Many programs won't open and I am unable to get on the internet on that computer. Please Help!

I ran the repair cd

What kind of CD are we talking about? Some recovery CD?

If you reinstalled Windows no files should be reported as missing.
Most likely there is something wrong with that CD or some hardware issue (hard drive, RAM...).
What was the actual reason for reinstallation?

My computer kept on looping when I rebooted it. I ran a system repair and had to go to piano lessons and I left it up as it was running. When I came back my dad rebooted it and couldn't get on the internet. I'm not exactly sure if he let it finish or not but I'm guessing he may have turned it off while the scan was running.

I'd probably try to reinstall Windows one more time.

I'm not sure what exactly you're doing.
Are you reinstalling Windows or you're trying some repair?

I'd probably backup your data and reinstall. Repair often just doesn't work.

Well, if repair doesn't work I don't think you have a lot of options.
