Can anyone help me?
My PC keeps rebooting when it starts to load Windows. I tried to start in safe mode and got the following blue screen error: STOP : c0000221 {Bad image checksum} The image wininet.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

I've been doing the research and I found where I can find the replacement wininet.dll file, but since I cannot boot up, how can I replace the corrupted file. I have the file saved to a cd. Bye the way, I lost my original Windows XP install CDs, so I can't go that route.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hmmm this is a toughie to fix without an install disc....please post back if OMGmissinglink's suggestion doesn't fix the problem and let us know if you're able to download XP Boot files in order to create a boot cd and if the troubled PC has a floppy drive as well please :)

Also, are you able to borrow an install disc from a friend or relative?

Thanks for the help - Luckily, I was doing some major searching last night and found my original operating system install disk - whew! I had to completely delete the partition, reformat it, and then install Windows for it to work. I tried to do a recovery, but that did not work. I have a feeling that without that install disk, I would have ben SOL. Thanks again

I was running the recovery CDs on my Sony Vaio desktop, about 10 minutes into the recovery process I encountered an error and the process stopped. Now when I restart the computer with the recovery CD in, a message saying "Setup is inspecting our computer's hardware configuration" this process will run for 4+ hours, if I hit a key, it says "starting VAIO system recovery Utility" it runs for about 2 minutes, then goes to blue screen with the message:

STOP: c0000221 (bad image checksum)
the image wininet.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the corrupted checksum.

I do not have an install floppy disc.

Hello

I am running Windows XP home

I installed a windows update express install, rebooted and now I have blue screen with

STOP: c0000221 (bad image checksum)
the image wininet.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the corrupted checksum.

as soon as I boot up after windows XP screen.

I have tried removing latetst hotfix (KB936782_WMP11$) via recovery console using this method ...

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/spuninst.htm

...but no success.

No floppy drive. I do have orginal XP CD.

Does not work from last good config, safe mode,

Help needed. Need NOT to wipe data.

Many Thanks

please start a new thread with your problem, instead of hijacking this one.

1. I haven't hijacked anything... it is exactly the same problem as the first problem and didn't want to spam up your forum.

2. The original post still hadn't recieved a fix response.

3. I have now sorted it myself. For anyone who needs the help, I used the XP CD, Booted to the Recovery Console, selected new install and then selected the repair option. All working now working fine with no loss of data.

Sorry to have troubled you. I won't bother returning if this is considered 'hijacking'.

Hi Gary,

While we do encourage someone to start a new thread for each problem, there has been no harm done at this point. You posted the problem, solved the problem and gave a solution.

I do hope you will reconsider and stick around and enjoy the forum. Have a nice evening.

Sorry if I sounded rude Gary. Just wanted you to know you'd be better helped with a new thread.
Just chill out and relax, dude
