Google is a great tool for finding things. If you know the name of the missing .dll file, you could search for it on google.

Once you find a downloadable version, you could download it and then put it in the appropriate folder. I know this works on XP having done it a time or two and I suspect it would work on any other flavor of windows.

If the .dll file you're looking for is a system .dll (ie: not from a piece of software you installed) you might be able to find said .dll on the install disk. It would likely be in a compressed format though so you'd have to extract it before you could place it in the appropriate folder.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

First of all, make sure, that the DLL file, you're missing belongs to the operating system or to one of the installed software and not to a virus or trojan.

✔ Best Answer
Sometimes the version number of a file is important so you have to take care with downloads.

If it is a system file you can type sfc /scannow in the Run box and let Windows replace it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
