Upon powering up my pc I get an error "the resource DLL could not be loaded" and subsequently I get another message that says "application's resource file could not be found. The configuration Utility will now quit".  As a result of these "errors" I cannot load properly "Windows Media Player" and other applications donot seem to run properly.   I run WINDOWS XP ,... have downloaded all windows update and tried several other downloads to no avail. I believe some of the DLL and other files might have been corrupted as a result of a virus.  I Would appreciate if someone has a way to properly restore the missing files.  By the way I get no indication as to which DLL files may have been deleted or corrupted.

if you come up clean, to restore native files, go to start, run, type in sfc /scannow   making sure there is a space between the c and the / have your xp disk ready

click start | run  |msconfig and startup tab
"disable all"

seems that some application at startup is causing the error.
