    I think I may have deleted a necessary file for my wireless internet to work. Every time I try and search for a wireless network it comes up with this message:

    Error loading C:\Windows\system32\van.dll
    C:\Windows\system32\van.dll is not a valid Win32 application

    Is there any way I can get the file back? Download it or something?

    Also, every ten minutes or so a pop-up comes up at the bottom of my screen saying that my Recovery drive is full. What can I do about this?

    I have a Dell Vostro 1500, and Windows Vista as the operating system.

    Any help with be so appreciated! Thank you so much!!

    Try this at a command prompt: SFC /SCANNOW

    It sounds like the file has gotten corrupted.
