Windows XP is the best windows version released by microsoft. Researched shows that winxp performances is more powerful than windows vista. But winxp is a fagile windows as system files can get easily damage or currupt. Common error of winxp is during the boot up session windows display this error message "the file hal.dll is missing or currupt….." there’s always a solution for problems in winxp. The solution for the problem above is very easy. Please try this: insert the windows xp cd in your cd drive and boot up from the cd, when ask to install a fresh copy of windows or repair the existing one, press ‘r’ this will start the windows recovery console. Type the number of your windows installation usually 1 and press enter. Type the admin pw if prompt, then type: expand e:i386hal.dl_ c:windowssystem32hall.dll then press enter. Please note that the letter ‘e’ is the cd drive letter, maybe different depends on your computer and the letter ‘c’ is your hdd letter maybe different too.  After operations type ‘exit’ and press enter. I hope this solve your problem.

* 1 Update your operating system. Because support for various versions of Windows XP are ending in 2010 and 2013, it is important to update Windows XP to its most current form to ensure compatibility with your current software and hardware profile. To update your computer, go to the "Control" panel," select the "Automatic Updates" icon and enable automatic downloads. Once enabled, the updates should begin downloading momentarily.
* 2 Uninstall incompatible programs. Because of Windows XP’s age, some programs have fallen out of compatibility with Windows XP. If you find a program that has been updated and is no longer compatible with Windows XP, you will need to uninstall it to prevent errors from occurring.
* 3 Expand virtual memory. If you are having issues accessing some of Windows XP Professional’s higher functions and are experiencing crashes, freezes or error messages, you can expand Windows XP Professional’s virtual memory so more resources can be devoted to your primary task. You can expand virtual memory by disconnecting from LAN, disabling unnecessary server connections or temporarily suspending "background" operations using the task manager.
* 4 Perform a repair installation. If you are receiving errors about missing or corrupted files, you will need to perform a repair installation to restore this content. Insert your Windows XP Professional installation disc into your CD drive then restart the computer. When prompted, select "Boot from CD" and enter the installation utility. Press the "R" button to begin repairing Windows XP’s system files.
