How to fix "DLL was not found" errors for Windows PCs

When there is error in DLL files, your computer will have different symptoms. If the DLL files in your computer have become missing, corrupted, deleted or removed, you will have following error messages during Windows and software programs startup:

  1. DLL is missing from your computer
  2. Can't find DLL file
  3. Failed to load DLL file
  4. DLL entry point could not be found

DLL errors can occur due to arising BHO infection, malicious software (malware), incorrect system operation, out-of-date drivers, etc. If DLL error is not fixed immediately, your computer would no longer perform well and it would become crashed in a sudden.

As the causes of DLL not found errors are different, so to fix them faster, you need to find out what are making these happen. "Not found DLL" error indicates that the specific version of DLL file in your computer is incorrect, to resolve this issue, you can try the following 4 methods:

  1. If you got the error after installing new software programs, please uninstall them to fix it. Most of the antivirus/antispyware software can change the properties of DLL, as usual; uninstalling antivirus can help fix these kinds of errors.
  2. If you got the error after Windows/software updates, please remove the updates to repair the problem. Upgrading system/program introduces new DLL that will overwrite the shared DLL files in your computer and then cause DLL problems.
  3. If you got the error after virus/spyware infection, please use the latest antivirus software to try fixing this kind of issue. Virus/spyware can change DLLs and used them for illegal purpose. For example, they will collect your financial data and send to the remove servers via electronic means.
  4. If you got the error after uninstalling programs, please reinstall them first and then uninstall them. Program uninstalling will remove shared DLL files that are used by Windows systems and other software programs. Please select "Don't remove shared file" during uninstalling.
