I'm somewhat of a "troubleshooting novice". The dll repair link you sent has moved and I can't find it.

The corrupted *.dll files are not in the Registry itself.

If you tell us which *.dll files you need, we can probably tell you where to get them.

In many cases there is a second copy of the exact same dll file already on the hard drive.

Type this in the Run box and hit Enter key:

sfc /scannow

This should (in theory) find any problem files and replace them with the correct versions.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.

There are certain software designed specifically to detect and repair registry dll files that are corrupted due to system crash, viruses and other problems. You can use those tools, called a registry cleaner, that has the ability to fix corrupted file associations, which in turn lead to dll files running as they should.

Sure, there programs that fix registry associations but most registry cleaners simply allow you to remove invalid entries. Unfortunately the latter don't usually fix much except pop-ups asking for files because a program removal process has not got shot of the registry entries.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.
