WININET.dll Issue or Virus?

Microsoft Windows xp home edition w/sp2

Specs: Windows XP
When I log on to my user on the computer, a message comes up saying : WININET.dll not found. Try downloading a new version of this program.
After that, all that shows up on the computer screen is my desktop background, and absolutely nothing else. I am able to access task manager with ctrl+alt+delete, however when I try to run or open programs via the taskmanager, nothing happens, OR a message pops up saying that this file was not found or that I might not have permission to access the file.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm not sure if this is just a technical spazz, or if there's a virus involved.
