Windows 7: Deleted dll file, computer will not start.

Deleted dll file, computer will not start.

Okay, so my Microsoft security essentials did a scan on my computer last night, and found a coinminer virus; my boyfriend stayed up to watch the scan, though he said he went ahead and removed the file it was infected with instead if quarantining it. The file was kwdll or somesuch, and now that the computer has restarted, setup repair started as well. It's been running for a little under an hour, but I've heard of it freezing for 12 hours or more.

My question is, what the heck do I do if it keeps going for that long? Is that normal? I've also heard that if you power down the computer while it's doing the repair if you think it froze, it may delete all of your files...so I don't want to do that.

I do not have a windows disc, and don't know anybody with one. My computer is JUST out of warranty, as well. >_< I am posting this from my phone.

Help? :/

Ha, luckily for me, the startup repair did its job without a problem at all. It restored the missing file, much to my pleasure.
