"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
<Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
Please re-install a copy of the above file."

What can be done to correct this?  I've replaced the file.
Can the MBR cause this?

Can this be fixed, or am I looking at a reinstall of Windows.
