I have a serious problem here with my computer.
When the Operating System tries to load, right after the XP professional loading screen, the computer restarts.
If I press F8 at the start-up and choose the option 'Don't restart computer on system failure' after the XP screen, a blue sceen appears with some error like 'error occured at (0000????) x (00000000) system ended.
I belive I know what the problem is,
I can recall that one of the last things I did (which was kinda stupid :sigh: ) was that moved the dll file 'secur32.dll' from the system32 folder and into a new one.
Here I renamed it secur32.dll[System32] with the intentions of returning it.
I was tryng to get rid of a program that I could not delete, one of its dependancies was secur32.dll so I moved to another location so that it could not read it.
When I restarted the computer it could not load again!!!
I then learned that secur32.dll was essential for the OS to load.
I was wondering if there is some way to:
(1) Read the file from a floppy at the required time.
(2) Run the OS in some MS-DOS or command prompt mode where I won't get the error and may be able to copy back to file to the required place. (Note: I treid all the options at the F8 screen)
(3) Download files from internet to make a start up disk to run the secur32.dll or copy it to its place.
Please help me quickly someone!
I shall post if needed the error on the blue screen.
Thank you for your time!
