What is DLL Fixer? Should you keep it?
By Renee | 03/Mar/2024
The DLL Fixer exists for those annoying DLL file not found or DLL missing errors. DLL Fixer is a type of software that claims to fix all types of dll file problems including dll missing or corrupted errors automatically by downloading the latest DLL files, and at the same time, cleans up the registry entries related to the errors to help computer programs run faster and smoother.
Sounds perfect, right? Before you give a positive answer and rush to download DLL Fixer, you really should learn something about DLL files.
What is DLL file?
In fact, DLL files are created and distributed by software developers who try to use them to fix the bugs of the software quickly, which usually come with the software packages. They are just small parts of the software. Therefore, a clean and updated copy of DLL file can only be provided by the developers and the websites who offer DLL files download are not guaranteed. Either does DLL Fixer.
Why not choose DLL Fixer to fix the DLL errors?
DLLs from DLL Fixer are sometimes outdated
Software developers rarely have the single DLL files available for download, so if a reinstall of their software program doesn't replace or repair the DLL file you're after, I recommend contacting the software company and requesting a copy of the file, instead of using DLL Fixer to download the unoriginal or questionable DLL files.
DLLs from DLL Fixer could be infected with malware
Download sites or the fixer could download the DLLs from any resources available so that you could not be promised to have a virus-free DLL file.
So How do you fix DLL problems properly?
Missing DLL files or not found could be caused by the laziness of the computer system, which just tells you a reason that the software does not run in the right way, and you should figure out what the real problem is. To do this, you can:
1. Use Neptune SystemCare to inspect and fix the common errors
-> Launch Neptune SystemCare Ultimate and run PC checkup at first.
-> Wait a few seconds for the result and click Fix. Then restart your computer to see if the DLL error still happens.
2. Perform an SFC scan
File corruption could also cause DLL problem. To troubleshoot it, you can run an SFC scan:
->Press Win+X on the keyboard and then choose Command Prompt (Admin).
->When command prompt window opens, type sfc/scannow and then press Enter.
