I do this because the causes and fixes can be quite varied.  And complicated such as http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-xp/user32dll-was-not-found/124474.html

There was no copy of user32.dll in the c:\windows\system32\dllcache\ location.  I found a copy of it in a $HF_MIG$ SP2QFE folder inside the Windows directory from the recovery console.  I copied it to the system32 folder and it worked like a charm.  Good luck!
