Windows 7 Computer Getting Error Ststring.dll Is Missing
» I get an error message that ststring.dll is missing when I start my computer running windows 7 home premium. It suggests I reinstall it. What is ststring.dll and how and should I reinstall it?
As for the dll errors like "DLL not found" or "DLL is missing" errors, downloading and replacing a single DLL file is the right way to go. But in most complicated cases, there are combined reasons related to many different dll files, and you have to download and replace all these dll files. It will be a lot of work to finish this.
To make it simple, Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Download DLL - Free menu > click Start Scan & Download DLL - Free button, choose your needed DLL > click More Information > click Download button from the open web page.
And Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems are fixed.

You should be able to locate a backup file and copy it to theC:\Program Files (x86)\Dell DataSafe Local Backup\Components\scheduler. If the above does not help and indeed you have the Dell program, contact their support.

All I want to do is find a copy of STString.dll and download it. I searched the entire system and it isn't anywhere. Not only do I find this extremely irritating and a waste of my time, but clicking upgrade and being brought to a shopping cart/ check out for $40???
I ran Windows Defender which apparently obliterated this system file. I find that to be extraordinary. This program somehow disappearing from our computers is an attempt by DELL to get more money. No Clean Up program should be able to delete important system files.
- CASEY STRICKLAND replied on January 7, 2013: » I have to say that for system files to be deleted as viruses or unsafe files or whatever by anti-virus software cannot be looked at any other way than as a scam to get you to purchase additional software to fix your computers.
I suggest that anyone who isn't a computer person and who tries to fix something and is led to a shopping cart/ check-out, to call your computer's support group. In the case of this "upgrade", it would have provided me with a whole bunch of back up that I don't need.

- MALIK WILLIAMS replied on January 9, 2013: » The file STstring.dll belongs to "Dell DataSafe" local backup software so re-installing that application should fix the error. Alternatively, if you don't use it anyway, uninstall it or remove it's component from the startup list. Easiest way to do that is with UniOptimizer. Install and open it. Locate to Dell DataSafe, highlight it, then click "disable".Restart Windows. Hopefully you will no longer get the file error on startup.
