That URL worked for me when I entered it into a browsers, and the dll was downloaded. Are you perhaps behind a proxy? Can you download the dll by doing what I did?

First i downloaded this Git,
msysGit-fullinstall-1.7.11-preview20120620.exe
when i installed this it installed git in some command prompt and took arround 2.30 hours to install, and installed git with the above error, and after installation i don't know how to even start that, it doesn't have any GUI.

than i installed
Git-1.7.11-preview20120710.exe
this installation has GUI.
both the installation were quite different, i don't know what is the difference?

Where did you download this from? When I clicked the download button at http://git-scm.com/download/win the file I get is named Git-1.7.11-preview20120620.exe

than i installed
Git-1.7.11-preview20120710.exe

The first one is the basic Git software, but it is command-line only. The second one adds a GUI to control the first. Mots git tutorials assume only the use of the command line.

I assume that by now you have tried the link I gave and downloaded the installer from there. But here is another hint, go to the link you posted and read the Summary and Labels column and ask yourself if the file you downloaded is
the one you really want (I doubt that you want to hack git!).

One the GUI tool, look into the installation directory, there might be an uninstaller there. Otherwise, I would try just deleting the installation directory and removing any desktop and start menu icons for the GUI.

It's a geek way of saying - "if you want to add features or fix bugs or do any other changes to Git itself".
