When I start the system, I get the message "failed to load Launcher dll" I hit OK and the system load and seems to work.

I am under Windows Vista Home and when I start the system, I get the message "failed to load Launcher dll" I hit OK and the system load and seems to work. I'm afraid that something is not correct, what do you recommend? The two available Service Packs have been installed.

The error seems to be a common problem with Dell laptops:


It seems that apoint.exe gives the error that indicates that the problem is with the Alps touchpad driver.

Try to uninstall the Alps touchpad driver and then install the latest version available from Dell for your laptop:

  • When I start my computer I get a message that says that the file < root windows > \system32\hal.dll. is damaged or missing.

    file HAL.dll

    When I start my computer I get a message that says that the file \system32\hal.dll. is damaged or missing. Please reinstall a copy of the file. I have the original Windows XP CD and I tried to re - install, but it will not go beyond the implementation of window. I can't sign in to windows. How can I reintall this file?

    It's extremely likely that you will need to replace the hal.dll and since there are seven files on the XP installation CD that will extend into hal.dll, which would you choose?  It depends on your hardware, but it is extremely likely that the problem (did I already say that?).  I've never had to replace a file hal.dll for this problem.

    The real problem is most likely that XP just can not find the file because of a file system corruption or a file c:\boot.ini afflicted.

    For this error, I would always be first boot from the XP Recovery Console and sometimes run a chkdsk-r that will fix things right to the top.

    If the chkdsk /r is clean and you have the same problem, and then re-create your c:\boot.ini file but rename the old one first so you don't build on top of those afflicted - this tidbit is absent from MS KB article that assumes too.

    You can do all this in the XP Recovery Console, but do go through these methods in this article and see how you go.

    For example, method 1 will not work if your system does not start.  You may have more luck with other "methods".

    If that doesn't work, then I suggest to provide a little more information about your system:

    Since the Microsoft Answers forum does not have any kind of information system request when a new question is asked, we know absolutely nothing about your system.  Not knowing the basic information a problem prolongs the frustration and the agony of these issues.

    Thank you MS Answers, allowing the resolution of simple problems as frustrating and a lot of time as possible.

    Provide information on your system, the better you can:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Your system have IDE or SATA disks?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    The question was preceded by a loss of power, aborted reboot or abnormal termination?  (this includes the plug pulling, buttons power, remove the battery, etc.)

    The afflicted system has a working CD/DVD (internal or external) drive?

    You have a real installation CD bootable XP which is the same Service Pack as your installed Service Pack? (this is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    If the system works, what do you think might have changed since the last time it did not work properly?

    You can try those Microsoft committed the 'experts' ideas Support Engineer (1, 2, 3) for safe, clean boot Mode, Online Scanner, but I think that most of the people who know how XP would recognize that there is no component 'V protect' in Windows XP and a simple search Google reveals that your problem is with your AVG software and has nothing to do with Windows XP.

    You should look in their forums (like me) and here's what they suggest:

    Vprotect belongs to AVG Security Toolbar.
    Please try to run repair installation using the latest installation package.

    If the problem persists, please follow all the steps in the instructions to complete reinstallation .

    I think that if I were you, I would follow the instructions on the page AVG to uninstall and reinstall your AVG because there may be other parts of AVG who are afflicted that you have not yet discovered, but in AVG, some people with V forums protect problems find that AVG repair install works.

    There is nothing to worry about it. UNKNOWN means, the listener knows the orcl SID because of the list of SIDS. This is called static record. If your instance orcl's up, PMON dynamically registers the listener (if you are using port 1521 without additional configuration), which leads to a READY State.

    Salvation exodus REV,

    You did it of any material changes or software on the computer before this problem?

    I recommend you to uninstall Avast! & Comodo temporarily from Add / Remove Programs. Later, check to see if the problem persists.

    To uninstall Avast!, you can use utility aswClear to uninstall Avast!.

    For more information, refer to this link: Uninstall Utility

    You can not install Comodo since Avast! has a built-in & antivirus firewall.

    Hope the helps of information.

    Hi stinger2165,

    1. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    2 when was the last time it was working fine?

    It is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    I suggest that you put the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See the link below to learn more about how to clean boot.
