this article I will explain...
what exactly is a .dll anyway, what is it doing on MY COMPUTER?
stands for Dynamic-link library. It is a resource used by your
Windows operating system. It is one of the many tools that your
applications (Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, etc.) use to work
properly. DLL's are a great improvement to the way earlier versions
of Windows used to handle application data. It is much better for the
memory management of your computer (you need memory to run
applications and the operating system). DLL's eliminate the need to
run individual resource pools for each application you are running.
This makes your computer so much faster.
of a .DLL exactly as the name suggests. Let's imagine that each .DLL
is a library and that the functions and data that each one contains
are individual books. If an Microsoft Office wants to know how to
display the font you are trying to use, it has to go to the “library”
and find the “book” that tells it how.
job of a DLL is very important! Any one DLL is relied upon by many
applications for the data and functions they need to work properly
and one DLL could possibly be providing resources for several
applications at the same time!
now we have all these different applications trying to check out the
same book. If someone forgets to return it or tears out a page, then
there is going to be a problem!
you see... if you have an error with one of these DLL's, it could
begin to effect many applications on your computer and should
something happen to a DLL that your Windows operating system is
using, your entire system could become unstable!
is a .DLL error and why am I getting them...
probably wondering, “Why am I getting this error? I didn't DO
This, I can sympathize with.
Anytime I've ever been given a .DLL error by Windows, I think the
same thing. One day it just happens all of a sudden and you want some
answers. Somewhere along the way, probably while the .DLL was in use,
the .DLL was mishandled and now, one of it's functions or some of
it's data is either missing, incomplete, or corrupt.
We have compiled an index of guides on how to manually fix common DLL errors.
A few years ago, fixing this
issue would have been finding the .DLL online and installing it
manually. Today, there are much easier, automated fixes to .DLL
to Easily Fix a .DLL error...
The vast majority of DLL errors are caused by errors in your system registry. All it takes is one innocent mistake to cause a major headache, and often times this mistake can only be found using an automated tool. Thankfully, although the problems they cause can be very hard to track down and painful to fix manually, the mistakes in your registry causing the errors are very easily repaired when you have the right tool.
The tool we recommend you use is SlimCleaner Plus. It is a very simple, lightweight and easy to use
application from SlimWare Utilities. It will automatically detect
.DLL errors and correct them for you. It will also correct any other
errors in your registry, which is essentially the filing system for
those libraries we were talking about earlier. ( click here to download SlimCleaner Plus ) RECOMMENDED
