DLL Not Found? How to Stop Missing File Error Messages

DLL Not Found? How to Stop Missing File Error MessagesAt Windows startup, you may have encountered a missing .dll file error message that comes back every time your boot your computer. This can be caused by an invalid registry entry.

Missing DLL File/DLL Not Found is Not a Manual Fix

The registry database lists configuration settings that determine how Windows appears and behaves. Due to the complexity of the Windows registry, you may not want to manually edit your registry database to solve the missing .dll file error. One misstep while editing your registry manually can prevent your system from starting up, create new system errors and cause crashes.

Registry cleaners can be useful tools to solve certain kinds of problems in the registry, like those created when:

  • a program doesn’t uninstall correctly
  • a malware infection isn’t cleaned up properly
  • you have redundant items in the registry
  • there are broken links in the registry
  • you have missing file references in the registry

Microsoft only recommends changing values in the registry “that you understand or have been instructed to change by a source you trust, and that you back up the registry before making any changes.”

PerfectRegistry automates the process of looking for invalid registry entries, missing file references like the one causing your .dll error message, and broken links within the registry. It also takes a backup of the registry before repairing and defragmenting it.

Besides repairing errors, PerfectRegistry defragments the registry, compacting it for faster system access to your Windows configuration settings, resulting in faster boot time and general Windows operation.
