Common PC Problems And How To Handle Them On Your Own

Friday, 18 September 2009

The easiest way to start handling PC problems is to take some time in understanding computer error types and messages. Today we will study how to identify, diagnose and solve one of the most common computer problems known as DLL file errors.

DLL files serve an important purpose. They are a library of files which were created by Microsoft a few decades back and are used by different programs and applications to execute some general tasks. These files ensure that applications are faster and consume less memory space in a computer. Below is an example of a DLL error message:

Msvcr71.dll Not Found”

This is a key file which controls display items in your operating system as well as many applications.

DLL errors can happen due to:

  • Some problem in one or more DLL files which makes them unusable.
  • Deletion of a DLL file by mistake during uninstallation of some other application.
  • A malware assault that has infected the DLL files or has blocked their access.
  • Conflict between files of different programs.
  • Hard disk problems that may generate errors, such as the ntdll.dll error.
  • Obsolete or corrupt device drivers or hardware issues.
  • Incomplete uninstallation that may leave some remnants of the application and that may cause DLL errors.

Steps to Fix DLL Errors

DLL errors can be easily fixed once the error has been correctly identified and its origin has been diagnosed. The easiest way to accomplish this is to copy the error message and perform an internet search. You will receive comprehensive information about the file and its associations in addition to the method of resolution.

Listed below are a few recommendations for dealing with DLL errors:

  1. Replacing the corrupt or missing file with a working file from a genuine source like the official CD or from the manufacturer’s website. Make sure that you do not download a rogue file which can be a virus or spyware in hidden form.
  2. Uninstalling and then reinstalling the application to see if the error disappears.
  3. Sweeping your computer with anti-virus and anti-spyware tools to weed out error-causing malware.
  4. Uninstalling the program after installing which DLL errors started appearing—if the installation is faulty, you may use a reliable third-party program uninstaller to do the job.
  5. Updating the obsolete drivers or replacing the corrupt drivers with proper drivers.
  6. Scanning and cleaning the Windows Registry with the help of an automatic registry cleaner.
