I had a Dell PC that has Windows Service Pack 2 installed on it. But it failed to start up recently because I deleted important system files by mistake when I was cleaning virus manually. Then I tried to repair using recovery console but it didn't work. Later on I was trying to repair it using Windows CD. In the middle of repairing, it asks for a file called ialmudlg.exe. I downloaded that file gave it to the installer but it didn't continue the installation and again asks for the file. To be honest, I don't know what this file is. The thing is I need to get my important files in My documents and desktop folders. How can I do that? Or can I finish the repair installation? I have another Windows OS on D:\ now. Oh I got it! I got it! Thanks God.
