    when i load up windows xp i get an error that tells me that it cant find shell32.dll. my logon interface no longer boots because of this and as a result it tells me to restart. when i try to recover the system through the recovery cd i get a bad checksum image error telling me that the checksum does not match the computed checksum and blue screen and everything halts.

    i think i may have deleted the shell32.dll. have i completely destroyed the computer? please help. thank you in advance.
