Steps to fix DLL errors
Depending on the cause of the DLL error on your computer, you may perform the following steps to fix the error:
Recover the DLL file from the Recycle Bin
If you have accidently deleted the DLL file, then restore the DLL file from the Recycle Bin to fix the DLL error.
In case you have permanently deleted the DLL file then you may use any of the methods mentioned below to procure the missing DLL:
Upgrade your software
In case you started receiving the DLL error only after you installed a new application, then chances are that a current version of the DLL file was overwritten with an earlier version.
Check to see if you installed the latest version of the software. If the version of the software is old then uninstall the software and install the latest version of the software.
Run a malware scan
Malware programs, such as viruses, trojans, worms, and other variants infect your computer and cause various errors, including DLL errors.
If the DLL error is occurring due to malware infection, run a malware scan on your entire computer to remove the malware and fix the DLL error.
Run a registry scan
Issues in your Windows registry may also cause recurring DLL errors, such as xvidcore.dll, mfc80u.dll, and msvcr71.dll errors. To fix DLL errors occurring due to problems in the registry, run a registry scan using registry repair software to restore the registry’s integrity and fix recurring DLL issues.
