Default NEED HELP finding a windows file!!

I have a computer that is running windows XP, i had to do a non-distructive recovery to the computer and now it wont boot. It says that <Windows>\system32.hal.dll. is missing or corrupted. Were would i find this file and does anyone have the file i can have so i can replace the missing or corrupted file. The reason im asking for the file is cause i dont have an installation cd cause its a HP computer and the recovery windows files is in the other partition and i think the file there is corrupted too!!

thanks for any help yall may have!

hal.dll free download - DLL-files.com Is a good site for finding missing dll files.

I took a look at the like you gave me, it looks to me you have to be in windows to use that. I cant even boot into windows, it will post but not load the GUI.

by the way the file is <Windows Root> and not just <Windows>.
