The most common causes of DLL errors are:

* Corrupt Windows Registry Structure
* Outdated System and Device Drivers
* Adware or Spyware Infection

The recommended procedures for fixing DLL errors are:

1. Run Registry Cleaner:

Run a registry cleaner (i.e. Norton WinDoctor, CCleaner, RegClean, Registry Fix, etc.) to clean out any invalid registry entries.

NOTE: If you don't have a registry cleaner installed on your computer, you can download the free CCleaner by clicking on the link below

Download Latest Version of CCleaner

When you use Ccleaner, you must remember to click on the 'Registry' button on the left side of the window before you can click on the 'Scan for Issues' button at the bottom of the window. And, with CCleaner, running the registry cleaner repeatedly will sometimes cause the same invalid registry entries to be displayed over and over. If that happens more than twice, the only option is to allow those invalid registry entries to remain - because indications are that those invalid registry entries are not truly invalid at all.

If you would like to use CCleaner to remove unnecessary files from your hard drive, the first thing you will want to do is to click on the 'Options' button on the left side of the window, then set the desired options for Settings, Cookies, Include, Exclude and Advanced. Then click on the 'Cleaner' button on the left side of the window and the 'Analyze' button at the bottom of the window. When the analysis is complete, click on the 'Run Cleaner' button. It is also a good idea to run the Analyzer repeatedly until everything that should be cleaned has been found.

2. Run a device driver scan

If you don't have a device driver scanner installed on your computer, you should be able to find several options on the Internet - many of which are free for a single use - such as this one

3. Scan for Malware:

Perform a full scan of all drives for viruses, worms, adware, spyware and other malware.

4. Uninstall, perform a Computer Cleanup, then perform a 'clean' Reinstall

If none of the suggestions above help to solve the problem, the only other option would be to click on the link below

Error: The program has stopped working

then follow Steps A thru C in that FAQ for uninstalling the software, performing a computer cleanup, then reinstalling the software.
