I'm afraid that if you deleted the file, you can't get it back :(
You can extract it from the installation disk of your operating system... or if you know anybody with the same operating system, you can copy the file from there.

uric,

Firstly, how did you delete the file?  Did you use the Avast function, or the Windows function?

Try looking in the Recycle Bin to see if it is there.  If not, then you may try a Registry restore.

If that fails, as Igor stated, you can get it on your system disk.

If you don't have the system disk, I think I have the web address for most dll files.
