DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library, which is a file that contains codes and information essential to Windows processes, usually shared by multiple application purposes. DLL problems occur whenever these data are needed by executable files but none of these DLL files can properly respond to the request, or these files have been corrupted by viruses or faulty installation. Common DLL problems include kernel32.dll errors and wininet.dll errors. Fortunately, it is now very easy to detect and repair DLL errors correctly. This little Windows glitch is very easy to deal with, but it can oftentimes cause inconvenience if left unresolved.
A corrupt kernel32.dll file, as mentioned above, results in many independent factors such as BIOS configurations, application files and hardware and disk space issues. For instance, corrupted application files and broken Control Panel links can be the cause of the problem. On the other hand, even hardware concerns such as overheated CPU and a malfunctioning power supply can greatly affect the operation of this DLL file. It is also often true that this type of error appears when a specific program is trying to access to kernel32.dll through its protected memory allocation and fails to do so. In this case, the said program may have been improperly installed in your system; thus, you need to uninstall this and reinstall it to fix the problem. However, if there is a multiple count of applications facing the same error, you need to check your hardware components and settings because that might be where the problem began. To help repair DLL errors, keep updated versions of your system drivers. Run a regular antivirus scan and update your software regularly to get maximum protection.
Wininet.dll errors, on the other hand, are caused by corrupted Temporary Internet files. It usually happens when you explore using your browsers and suddenly you come across an error that looks like this: This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. After clicking the error message your browser and everything it has loaded will disappear. You can correct this problem by simply clearing your cache and deleting history files and Temporary Internet files that might be prompting the error.
So far the best way to prevent and repair DLL errors is to keep your PC clean and free from unwanted software and garbage. It still helps a lot to keep a regular checkup on your external peripherals and make the necessary hardware replacements if needed. For the software part, install a reliable antivirus program and update it regularly. There are so many available antivirus programs that come for free but can give you a good protection against these harmful viruses. Generally, most of these DLL errors come from virus attacks that automatically alter your registry entries, leaving programs corrupted and sometimes unusable. Make it a habit to scan your system in order to detect any harmful threats such as viruses, malwares, and worms. Download a registry cleaner that will regularly clean and repair broken or corrupted registry entries. These preventive measures can help you maintain an error-free PC and a virus-protected system in the long run.
