Thanks followed the instruction and was able to re install wininet.dll. Problem now is the file is being removed by a
Trojan - TR/Patched 827329
Any advice on how to get rid of this would be appreciated.
Ad-Aware identifies and quarantines this but keeps on reinstalling the trojan . If I restart the computer the trojan removes the wininet.dll and have to reinstall again.
