DLL problems

By lisacav ·
I am having a major DLL problem on my machine. When I try to log on to my ISP icon to connect to the Internet it will either freeze up my machine and I have to re-boot without shutting down properly or it will tell me that I have a problem with the run.dll and it will not allow me to log on. I had to subscribe to AOL just so that I could get on the Internet because I can't with my connection through my local ISP. I am so frustrated with this and I am not sure what I need to do to fix it. Can anyone help? You can email me at lisacav@ntplx.net. Thanks in advance.

Lisa

It sounds like you have a corrupted dll on your hands. You have two choices. Either do a reinstall or if you can find the dll on another machine with the same os as yours and copy it to your computer. If you can't do a copy rename the bad dll to run.old then copy the good run.dll to your computer and reboot. This should fix your problem.

If you cant find the dll on another machine you may try searching your os cd for the dll before doing a reinstall

Hi Lisa,
Try this:
Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs/Windows Components/ and unmark all the options under comunications. Shut Down the computer, re-start it and go to the same place and re-apply the communication options. It usually, re-install the components from the CD.

P.S. To make up for having to pay for AOL, Try www.worldspy.com Free Internet, e-mail and no banners.

Good Luck!

You don't say what version of Windows you are using, but it sounds like your IP stack isn't working. Go to a command prompt and type the following:

ping localhost

If you get an error message, you will need to get the Windows 95 Winsock update. Otherwise, you can go to Network under Control Panel, delete the protocol and reinstall it.
