Had a missing dll file on my new laptop with Win 10. Search suggested a programme called "Dll-Files Fixer". I used it and it re-installed the one missing file in the trail programme. For more it asks for a stiff payment. Is that worth it ?

✔ Best Answer
Best advice is to "ignore" any of these "we find and fix it - problem solvers" as they invariably are more a scam; designed to hook in the unwary and extract cash......

Most of them will generate a list of problems "they" have found; and then of course ask for money to resolve them. Frequently these problems either don't exist, or are easily resolvable without their help (and your money).

Remove the app from your computer and run ccleaner (a freebie cleaner utility well regarded here; and which will remove all manner of such "junk".

Install it using the custom/manual option - not the automatic. Carefully watch for and uncheck any pre-checked boxes (other than one for the utility itself); as that way you will avoid installing all manner of other nuisances...

Incidentally how did you discover you were missing a file in win-10; and Was win-10 working OK regardless?

It's very possible that your system is now infected. Uninstall the "DLL fixer" crapware & then run a full virus scan & malware/adware scan.

On booting my laptop with Win10 I received an error that an apparently essential DLL file was missing. DLL Files Fixer trail fixed it without a problem, but only that DLL file, but leaving the supposed 200 other errors. Regarding this problem I asked another question on Computing.net if Windows does not have a program to check the integrity and presence of all essential files. The answer I got is an application in Windows from 8.0 onwards. It is called SFC and needs to be run from the command prompt in in administrator mode as
sfc /scannow
.

Removed DLL Files Fixer with Revouninstaller, which removes really everything, like IOBit uninstaller.

Have used CCleaner for years, but that only removes out of date and other useless files.

Have Bitdefender Internet Security on my machines, no malware found, nor when I ran Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner.

Thank you all for the feedback.
