That isn't any file that belongs to windows XP I know of. It could be some malware. Before using the recovery disk, make sure to backup your data. Also, before recovery, test the HD using the manufacturer's diagnostic utility, and let it fix any errors.

By any chance do you mean \Windows\System32\hal.dll is missing? if you are follow rindi's advice by backing up your data and testing your hard drive. Also go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314477 and follow the steps outlined in the article.
