XP Pro problems

  JGR 19:10 29 Jan 2003

Hi folks

Can anyone help a newbie with this little problem ?

My PC takes a good 2 minutes to boot up & usually wants to scan my files & verify free space before fully loading. This takes upto 2 hours.

The only clue I have is that a few weeks ago whilst booting up it came up with missing/corrupted WINDOWS ROOT>\System 32\hal.dll. I managed to load up XP as normal but I have been having problems ever since.

Any help/advice very gratefully reveived.
