Dll File Access Is Denied

» When I am trying to reinstall a program, I can not install because I get a note that says that a dll file access is denied the install will not finish. I have another program that is also effected by this. What must I do to get my computer working properly again?

» Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) are resource files that run in memory when a linked program executable launches. If you try to remove a DLL file and receive an access denied error, you will need to unload it. Once a DLL file loads into system memory to provide resource linking it will continuously run until unloaded. You can use the Command Prompt to remove a DLL file from memory and allow deletion without receiving an access denied error.

DLL provides one or more particular functions, program accesses the functions by creating either a static or dynamic link to the DLL. A static link remains constant during program execution while a dynamic link is created by the program as needed. DLLs can also contain just data. DLL files end with the extension ".dll".

For any dll errors, the simplest solution to it is DLL Suite, which allows for auto check and free download. It has a comprehensive library of all kinds of dll file, and supports an easy fix for deleted, corrupted, damageddll file by mistake, virus(Exploit:Win32/CVE-2012-0158.CJ!ja).

    Method 2: If the above step fails then I would suggest that you run SFC scan on the computer which would scan for corrupt system files on the computer and replace them.

    The scan may take some time, so be patient. Windows will repair any corrupted or missing files that it finds. If information from the installation CD is needed to repair the problem, you may be prompted to insert your Windows XP installation disk.

    The emb. program Palette is the program that says it is Administrator protected. I have another program "Family Tree Maker that now will not start. It says" unable to locate componant. pcdlib32.dll not found. Looks like the SFC scan would be good to do too.

  3. JOHN MURRAY replied on February 19, 2013: » Firstly, try the SFC /scannow to see if it will correct any corrupt system files. Yes, it is on the computer, or it will ask to insert the Windows XP CD. It nothing wrong is shown, Check for Malware and viruses.

  4. JIM CREEK replied on February 22, 2013: » If your system is XP with Service Pack 3 and you do not have a genuine bootable XP installation CD that has SP3 on it already (you usually have to make those yourself), running sfc /scannow will complain a lot.

    That minor detail and bit of wisdom always seems to be missing from advice to run sfc /scannow...

  5. MAN LIU replied on February 23, 2013: » Its telling you you need Administrator permission to delete those files. john-pc is the default admin name when the pc was built and the OS set up. Are you logged into the john-pc account and if not you need to set up the account you are on so it has admin privileges.
