“Thayet Myo Hacking Day!” virus/trojan, then <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll missing? Or how to remove Hacking day virus?
Open the Regedit and delete explorer.exe in hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows/current version/run (or) hkey_current_user/software/microsoft/windows/current version/run.
You also need to uninstall the programs if the shortcut to that programs appear as archive icon.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.
1. Enter Windows XP Recovery Console.
2. When you reach the command prompt (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following and then press Enter:
expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll
Using the expand command as shown above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\windows represents the drive and folder that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.
3. If you’re prompted to overwrite the file, press Y.
4. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
If the above diesnt work for you then try our ALL TIME WORKING method 🙂
Now you pc should work fine. Thanks for reading this post. Feel free to comment.Thank you

I had same virus damage on system files and following appeared.
Couldn’t expand hal.dl_ from original Win XP setup cd, so I expanded it to usb HD and copyed instead.
After reboot following error message apeared:
load needed DLLs for kernel.
Please contact your support person to report this problem.
Then I used ERD commander and it worked out the problem. Once system files were restored I run old good nod32 to clean viruses. It was as explorer.exe.
I forgot my administrator password …. plz help !
