Thumbs up treat to u r XP do it or lost it

hey all u geeks i wanna to inform from 1 most important treat that might result in u r os break down in the case if u r os is winXP WIN NT WIN2000
hey look into the core and u will find that in windows\system32\ u will get a file hal.dll this file is nothing but a hardware absraction layer for u r pc its machine based so different for different machine if u will delete it or it will get deleted then u r in trouble as there is no way that u r system will reboot so plz keep the safe backup for tthis file or stay ready for u r system crash

Thanks for that....

I would recommend not deleting any file out of your system32 folder anyways.

if it does get deleted, you can always do a repair-install

i don't even remember if i told you to learn to use punctuation next time you write something..

but here it is again, don't write anything unless you can write it properly so others have a easy time of understanding what the hell you mean

Yeah a recovery console should do the trick but it's generally never a good Idea to deleat a file from system 32.

This reminds me of the time I deleted the shut down system on a 12 year old mac.
