What They Mean And How To Repair Them

Jun 26, 2008
DLL errors are a common problem for computer users, but what exactly is a dll, and how can these be fixed? A dll is a dynamic link library, and errors with these libraries can occur for a number of different reasons. A lot of times a new program on your computer will replace some files on your system which are shared files, and the files which are new may have some compatibility issues with other programs on your system. This may cause your system to crash, or result in a lot of dll errors messages.

What Causes DLL Errors?

Spyware is a big cause of dll errors, causing these errors almost as often as the file incompatibility issues in the Windows registry does. Spyware is very harmful to your computer, and your finances and privacy. Spyware is a software program that is secretly installed on your computer without your approval or consent. These programs may be bundled together with other software or be solo, and the purpose of the software is to gather information and track your browsing habits, among other things.

Installing a good anti spyware program can help eliminate spyware from your system completely. These software programs run a scan of your computer, and match all files found against the database of known spyware programs. If there is a spyware program on your computer, the software will also help to remove these security threats. These programs are much more than just an annoyance which slows down your computer, some of these programs can actually cause you to lose control over what your system does. Malicious software is one of the biggest problems web surfers have while browsing and downloading from the Internet.

Dll errors may also be caused by a virus or other electronic infection, such as a Trojan or worm, and there can be physical damage and files lost when this happens. If the dynamic link libraries are damaged in any way, then you will get dll errors. Your computer may crash, sometimes repeatedly, and many applications and hardware may not function. Installing and running an anti virus program can prevent these infections and keep your computer safe.

The biggest known cause of dll errors is the Windows registry. Because new programs may have replaced shared files, the dynamic link library may not initialize or work correctly, or even at all. This will result in the error messages, because programs can not access the dll. There is a very simple and hassle free way to fix this problem though, and get rid of the dll error messages on your system, with very little time or work involved. This is done by simply using a registry cleaner to automatically edit the registry, and clean up any fragments of deleted files and programs that are still there. The registry cleaner will remove any junk that has accumulated, causing your computer performance and speed to both increase, as well eliminating and preventing the dll errors.
