Last year my Dell computer with Microsoft XP crashed with a fatal error “root\system32\hal.dll missing”. I was not able to restart, log back in safe mode, or do much of anything to recover my hard drive files.

What is the difference between Adware, Spyware, and a Virus? Let Wikipedia Explain.
What is Adware?
By definition Computer Adware have Advertising functions that are integrated into or bundled with other software, which is often designed to note what Internet sites the user visits and to present advertising pertinent to the types of goods or services featured there. Adware is usually seen by the developer as a way to recover development costs, and in some cases it may allow the software to be provided to the user free of charge or at a reduced price. The income derived from presenting advertisements to the user may allow or motivate the developer to continue to develop, maintain and upgrade the software product. Conversely, the advertisements may be seen by the user as interruptions or annoyances, or as distractions from the task at hand. Users may also be given the option to pay for a "registered" or "licensed" copy to do away with the advertisements....Wikipedia
What is a Spyware?
By definition Computer Spyware suggests software that secretly monitors the user's behavior, the functions of spyware extend well beyond simple monitoring. Spyware programs can collect various types of personal information, such as Internet surfing habit, sites that have been visited, but can also interfere with user control of the computer in other ways, such as installing additional software, redirecting Web browser activity, accessing websites blindly that will cause more harmful viruses, or diverting advertising revenue to a third party. Spyware can even change computer settings, resulting in slow connection speeds, different home pages, and loss of Internet or other programs. In an attempt to increase the understanding of spyware, a more formal classification of its included software types is captured under the term privacy-invasive software... Wikipedia
