Constant DLL Errors in Win98

By shanethecomputerguy ·
A client of mine is constantly receiving .DLL errors, but he is not writing them down, or remembering when they happened. I am wondering if anyone knows of any software(that actually works) that will auto-fix any and all .DLL errors. Any help is appreciated!!

The commonest method of checking the Windows and other applications dll files is to run sfc. Click Start>Run and type


then click OK. Access the options and make sure that only the Windows folders are checked first, if that doe not resolve the issue then the dll's may be associated with applications. If so, run sfc again but ask it to check the Program files folder.

SFC will check the integrity of the files and offer to replace them if there are corrupt or old. You will need the Windows installation CD and any application installation disks also.

Good luck

Ahh Auto fix dll files.. NOT..

I would not suggest nortons or anything else like this for that matter.. I know I know.. boo's galore, but anyone that has been around long enough knows that this is a recipe for disaster (non bootable, I lost everything) computer lunch.. DONT DO IT.

There is only one method to use and that is the one stated in the first reply. Since Windows 98 has been a thorn since it was released, even this is no guarantee that this will fix it either..

I would suggest to do the following:

1. Back/Archive anything the users need to save/can't afford to lose.
2. Reformat and reinstall (hopefully not windows 98.. Since you're at this point, Please put on windows 2000. Much Much more stable and can be picked up for under $100 on ebay..

Good Luck Friend
