Missing boot-start driver bthex.dll

    (This may be repeated....if so, sorry!)When I start my computer (with
    Win XP Home SP3 installed), just after the BIOS info screen and before
    Windows even kicks in, I get a white progress bar at the bottom of the
    screen that fills up over about 20 minutes before the usual Windows
    logo/start screen appears. Looking at the event viewer for the System I
    find that "boot-start or system-start driver "bthex" was not found.
    Looking in the Registry indicates that bthex is expected to be found in
    Win\System32\Drivers. It is not there, so something has suddenly
    deleted\renamed it or something. I have put my installation DVD in the
    drive and tried a repair but this driver cannot be located there, and I
    have googled for it but with no luck. Can anyone suggest where I might
    find this system file, or maybe even search for it on their own Syste32
    folder and make it available to me?? Many thanks for any help in advance.
