The fact that that file is missing may actually be a result of a bad boot loader. It is possibly a virus, but run Startup Repair from the Windows 7 CD and let me know what happens.

Doing a repair install should take care of this... Good Luck...

You can run a system file check to check/repair system files. to run it go to start>search>type cmd>right click run as admin>sfc /scannow

EDIT: Hard to do if you cant boot. My duh just disregard

Missing HAL means PC will not boot. You have been spending too much time with your neighbor.

When I registered at HouseParty, I fat fingered my address. Now, my Party Pack with the free Ultimate license is floating around in UPS hell.
