Question Fixing a corrupt shell32.dll Bad Checksum

I was trying to install a 3rd party theme for windows xp MCE on my dell inspiron e1505. after rebooting i got the stop error STOP: 0000221. It will not boot into safe mode or anything. All the recovery stuff is on the partition. I've not tried to get into this and don't know how. I don't have an A: drive. I says this b/c i want to maybe make a CD and boot into DOS or something? Any help would be great. Thanks,

Talking Re: Fixing a corrupt shell32.dll Bad Checksum

well this is probably the only time someone will say they are glad they kept the partition and some of the bloatware.
i got in thru the ctrl+f11 key to norton ghost that dell had on here for recovery, but i'd never put any restore points on there. but i had backed up several of the files i replaced to put the theme (system32.dll and loginui.exe and I found the msgina.dll online)
from here i just cut and paste into the directory where they went, booted it up and it came up!
hopefully that is it. everything seems to be working like normal. i can't tell if it is slower or not (it could just be my mind freaking out). anyway that is it.
