Windows dll error

If you are trying to fix a Windows dll error, here are a number of suggestions that could help you out:

1. If the dll error is associated with a specific software program, see if an update is available, or try to uninstall and install the program again if that is possible, and finally contact the software vendor and request help.

2. You can run a complete check, using the SFC /SCANNOW Command. In order to do that run the command prompt (run it as administrator in Windows 7 and Vista) and then run one of the following commands:

sfc /scannow or sfc /verifyonly

The first command checks the integrity of your Windows files and attempts to fix the errors, while the second command only examines the integrity of the Windows files. Simply type the command in the command prompt and press Enter on your keyboard.

3. Run a complete virus and malware scan on your computer. Start by running a quick scan if it is supported by your antivirus application, then follow by complete scan. Additionally, scan your computer with Malware Bytes Anti-Malware as well and remove the found threats.

4. Register or re-register the dll. Use the regsvr32 command to register the corrupt dll file and fix the Windows dll error. Again, open the command prompt by running it as administrator, paste or type the regsvr32 command, followed by space and the dll name, and press the Enter key on your computer. If the dll is registered, you should see a message stating that the registration succeeded. If you receive an error message, make sure that you have started the command prompt as administrator or search on how to register dll files for your specific operating system.
