|mfc45.dll corrupted - How do I fix?|
I just reinstalled my OS (Vista 32-bit) on my Dell Inspiron 1525. As soon as I was able to get my wireless network working, I re-installed the AVG Internet Security 2011. Upon its initial system scan, it detected that the mfc45.dll executable file (c:\windows\system32\mfc45.dll) located in thewas corrupted. The only option AVG is providing is to remove this file. However, with not knowing what this file is actually for (what bigger picture program) I am hesitant to "remove" it.
I had to re-install my OS because for the last 2 weeks, my system would crash with the "blue screen of death" every night. Looking at the logs, I could not find the "smoking gun" problem. Night before last, however, my system crashed 4 times in 2 hours. That was when I decided to bite the bullet and reinstall the OS. I used the reinstaller program that was available in the System Repair [F8] options.
If I knew where to go to see about downloading a repair for this file, I would...but...
In order to rule out that this is a result of a virus or trojan, I downloaded the Malwarebites program that has been referenced in another forum on this site. It came up with no issues.
Can someone please help me?
