How to Fix DLL Errors With Freeware

By Tyran DeWalt

A Microsoft Windows DLL has data that is necessary to run various software programs. If a DLL file is defective, the software using the file will not open or run properly. DLL error messages can stem from a number of system issues, such as a bad program installation, registry issues and missing DLL files. You may receive error messages from numerous programs when a DLL is corrupt, because many programs use the same DLL. Running freeware to fix a DLL error is a viable alternative when you cannot repair the DLL manually.
