Must have done something really "dumb". I can't start XP Home now. I must have deleted some system files and XP is asking for it at startup. This is the error message that I got when Startup; Corrupted or missing File <Root Window >\system32\hal.dll Please copy missing file. apart from re-installing XP home, and I do NOT have the Recovery Disk, it is in my Partition D:\ Is theere anything I can do ?? Please help and Thank You.
