How to Fix Missing Hal.dll Errors
» I got the following message when I turned on my computer: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Hal.dll file is short for Windows Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL), a file that hides hardware complexities from Windows applications. It is a hidden file used by Windows XP to communicate with the hardware. Hal.dll can become damaged, corrupted or deleted for a number of reasons, and you will know it by the Windows pop-up error message at startup like this.
The "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error shows up immediately after the computer is first started. Windows XP has not yet fully loaded at the moment of this error message display. It is caused by a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location, or probably by Trojan:Win32/Avkill.E.
