Try starting your PC in safe mode and do a system restore to a date before the problem began. Have a read through this page, it'll give you a few pointers.

I also think for the benefit of others it's worth emphasizing this extract from the article:

"Use a free registry cleaner to repair wininet.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid wininet.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.

Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next".

It's more than possible that the use of a registry/file cleaner or aggressive uninstaller could have caused this issue in the first place so learning from such an even would be good for future reference :)
