Keep getting "the dynamic link library MSASN1.dll could not be found

This computer was attacked the other day, have cleaned up most of the problems, but now getting this ""the dynamic link library MSASN1.dll could not be found in the specified path" error.  Have done searches for this but can't find anything for windows NT 4.0.  Where would I locate a copy of the file, is it on the CD? and how do I go about "re-installing" the said file?  Also, the computer is not "seeing" the network, is this a different problem or is this also related to the msasn1.dll?

You can get it back by reinstalling service pack 6a and after that you should install the patches as LucF said.

Boot from the disk then doing an 'emergency repair'...
