Best Methods For Repairing DLL Problems On Your PC

Best Methods For Repairing DLL Problems On Your PC

Troubleshooting computer errors, especially application errors are not as difficult as some computer experts would like us to believe. For instance, let’s take the example of DLL errors. Every Windows user who has used computers for some time would be familiar with DLL errors, as they are the most common type of errors that occur on a Windows computer. However, what many Windows users fail to realize is that troubleshooting DLL errors is fairly easy and can be done on your own.

In this tutorial, we will cover the following topics:

  • What is a DLL file
  • Best methods for repairing DLL problems

DLL File – Definition

DLL is an acronym for Dynamic Link Library. Each DLL file on a Windows PC – and there are thousands of them – is there for a definite purpose and provides a specific functionality that different applications and the Windows operating system can use. For instance, different applications call upon a particular DLL file to control dialog boxes. DLL files are dynamic because they are loaded into the memory space of the application that calls upon them.

Owing to their presence in huge numbers, it is but natural that every now and then you may come across a DLL error, such as the mfc71.dll error. However, with the help of the steps listed in the next section you can easily resolve even the most obstinate of DLL errors.

Steps to resolve DLL errors

Update the software that is generating the error

If you notice that the error occurs only when you try to run a particular software then chances are there is problem with either the DLL file listed in the error message or other application file(s). Try updating the software and see if that makes the error go away.

If the problem persists after updating the software, uninstall and then reinstall the software.

Run a malware scan

Malware, are perhaps the biggest cause of DLL errors, such as the connapi.dll error. Malicious programs often alter or delete essential DLL files, causing frequent DLL errors on an infected PC. To fix DLL errors occurring due to malware, update your protective software with the latest malware definitions and run a complete scan on your Windows computer.

Furthermore, keep your computer protected from harmful programs by performing the following tasks:

  • Keep your antimalware software up-to-date and schedule regular scans on your computer.
  • Install a robust firewall.
  • Scan e-mail attachments before opening them.
  • Read the End User License Agreement (EULA) before installing new software.

Clean your registry

Registry-related issues are another major cause of recurring DLL problems. To fix and prevent DLL errors occurring due to issues in the registry, keep your registry clean, compact, and healthy. For this purpose, regularly clean the Windows registry using reliable registry maintenance software.

These three troubleshooting steps not only help you fix DLL errors, such as the msvcr71.dll error, but also help you in maintaining your PC’s optimal performance. In the end, remember with the right software and some diligence you can resolve DLL errors and prevent them from reoccurring in the future.

What To Do When You Encounter A Windows PC Error Message

What To Do When You Encounter A Windows PC Error Message

Are you fed up with your computer’s slow speed?

Are error messages, such as file type errors. a common occurrence on your Windows computer?

If you answered Yes, then this article is all you need to get rid of your computer woes forever.

In this article, we will discuss tips that will allow you to troubleshoot common Windows PC errors, such as .pcb file type errors on your own.

Tip#1 Perform a malware scan

Did you know that malware infection is often the root cause of a myriad of computer errors, such as the .daa file type error?

Malware programs, if present on your computer, can create havoc by deleting or altering various files and eating into your computer resources. In case you notice symptoms, such as a sudden increase in errors, or a drop in your computer’s performance, it is likely your computer’s security is breached.

The solution is to run a complete malware check on your Windows computer. To do this, first update your security tool with the latest malware definitions and security updates. Next, isolate your PC by disconnecting it from the Internet and from any network share that it is attached to. Now, restart your computer in Safe Mode and run a thorough malware scan. The simple steps illustrated below take you through how to start Windows in Safe Mode:

  1. Close all the running programs and restart your computer.
  2. As Windows reloads, press and hold the F8 key.
  3. Select the Safe Mode option using the arrow keys in the Advanced Windows Boot Option Menu and press Enter.

To ensure that all threats present on your PC are detected and deleted and quarantined, we recommend that you run the scan twice.

Update your Windows, driver, and software files

The next step is to update your Windows, driver, and software files.

  • Updating Window files – Windows PC’s come with a useful built-in Automatic Update feature that ensures new Windows updates are automatically downloaded and installed on your Windows computer. Ensure that this option is enabled on your computer. In case, you are using a version of Windows prior to Windows ME (Automatic Update feature was first introduced with Windows ME) then you will need to manually download any new updates and security patches available for your version of Windows from the Microsoft website.
  • Updating Software files – Many software too have an Update tool that you can use to update the software files. If the feature is absent in some of your installed software, then for these applications manually download the new updates by visiting the software manufacturer’s website.
  • Updating third-party drivers – When it comes to updating third-party drivers, you have two options – update drivers manually or use a reliable third-party driver update tool.

Use a reliable file extension repair software

A lot of file type errors, such as .aspx file type errors occur due to damaged file openers. The issue can be fixed by deploying a reliable file extension software. Such software fixes the damaged file openers, providing you quick access to files generating errors.

Tips For Troubleshooting Missing Driver Errors On Your PC

A common cause of driver errors is missing drivers. If a driver is missing, you will not able to access the related hardware device. For instance, if your sound driver is missing, then you will not be able to access your sound card. You will receive an error whenever a program tries to access your sound card.

Unlike many other computer errors, driver errors occurring due to a missing driver are fairly easy to resolve. You can fix common driver errors using a reliable driver maintenance tool. You can read the Driver Finder review to learn how driver maintenance software quickly scans all the hardware devices installed on your computer and helps you install any missing driver.

You can also troubleshoot missing driver errors by manually installing the missing driver. The problem with manually installing a driver is that this method can be time consuming.

In case the driver that is missing was not integrated with your operating system, check to see if you have the driver CD with you. If you have the driver CD, insert the driver CD in your CD or DVD drive and install the missing driver from there.

If you don’t have the driver CD or you downloaded the driver from the internet, then visit the driver manufacturer’s website and download the required driver from there. Save the file on your desktop, and double-click it to install the missing driver.

In case the driver you require is not present on the manufacturer’s website, you can use your search engine to locate websites that are offering the driver you need as a free download. Just remember to scan the files before installing the driver to ensure that the downloaded driver is free of malware.

As you can see, locating and installing missing drivers manually can be tedious. Moreover, you run the risk of installing a rogue program, especially when you download the required driver from unsolicited websites. That is why we recommend that you use reliable driver maintenance software to fix missing driver errors.

Now that you understand how to fix missing driver errors manually, let’s see what other circumstances—in addition to a missing driver—can cause driver errors.

Driver errors can occur if your driver files are infected, if Windows files are outdated, or if the entries related to your drivers in the registry are missing or incorrect.

In case you are receiving driver errors even when the related driver is present on your computer, then you may use the following tips to fix the error.

First, scan your entire computer for infections. In case the scan results show the presence of malware, promptly delete them and restart your computer.

In case no malware was found, install the latest Windows updates and restart your computer. Next, check to see if the driver issue is resolved.

If the error persists, scan your registry for errors using a reliable and easy-to-use registry repair software.
