Notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly

I have a Dell D600 laptop running XP Pro.

When trying to boot up my laptop an error occurs stating Wireless Configuration...."Notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly" .  After clicking "ok" the boot hangs without showing any desktop icons or access to any functions of the laptop.  I tried to boot in safe mode but the boot hangs up again.

I am wondering if I can disable the wireless capabilities so I can access my work files and begin to backup my documents.  I can worry about reloading the drivers, etc. at a later time but would at least like to return to work.  Accessing the internet is important but at least I would like

I tried to run the system setup but I am novice at best and did not want to muddy the water any further.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I ran AdAware shortly before it starting acting funny.  I am wondering if one of the "viruses" that were found (and subsequently deleted) were needed for the wireless device to work.

Again, I am looking to somehow disable the internal wireless so I am able to access my work files.  Is there any way to do this using the setup (F2 on boot screen)?  I found the page that shows my "Wireless Configuration"

Onboard Bluetooth:     Not Installed
MiniPCI Devise:            Wireless
MiniPCI Status:            Enabled
Wireless Control:       <Fn+F2>/Application
Wireless:                     On

I was thinking to change the "MiniPCI Status" to Disabled and "Wireless" to OFF but it wont let me change the values.  Any ideas?

As aforementioned, I am looking to get it to boot up so I can get some work files off.  I can then try to fix the wireless issues.

P.S.  AdAware is generally regarded as obsolete.  Is this the only antimalware program you have on your PC?  You should get something better.
