I have a computer with winxp on. I just removed lots of spyware and kazaa. I
was able to restart a few times but then I got an error on startup about the
hal.dll file being corrupt. I will use the repair feature on the recovery
disc and see if I can fix the dll file. My question is if I have to reinstall
XP is there a way I can do it without losing all my files and programs? I
have searched the net and see most people say that the hal.dll error is not
easy to fix, has anyone ever got this error to go away? Thanks in advance for
any help.

Hi Syl,

You can do a repair install using your WinXP disc. Make sure you set the
boot order to CD first in the BIOS.
After you accept the EULA, choose the Repair option and not the setup fresh
copy of Windows.

Post back with results.

Is this a fix for the hal.dll or will this install XP again save all my data
and programs? Thanks for your help.

The repair install will reinstall XP but you'll still have your files and
programs.
