How do you get rid of dll errors at start up?

Are you facing DLL errors very frequently? Do you want to get rid of DLL errors on startup? Well, first we need to know how a DLL file works. Dynamic Link library (DLL) is basically a library in the system that either contains a code, resource or data. These libraries usually have the file extension of drv, DLL or ocx. We must know that DLL files are an important part of our system. We must not deal with them if we are not familiar about it. Only expert programmers and software developers who deal with operating system work with these kind of errors. If you are facing a DLL error, it might not necessarily be because you messed up with any of DLL files. It might be for many other reasons. When our operating system was installed, many DLL files have also been transferred to our system. An executable programs (exe) usually calls a DLL program to perform a particular function. The function can even include a particular task for any hardware device of your computer. One of the most common example of the function of DLL files is to check the space in your system. Whenever, an exe file is initiated, it can call a DLL file to check whether the necessary space is available in your hard drive. It will also check if any similar code already exists in the system and then helps the exe file to only write the source code which is necessary in the system. In a nutshell, it helps in performing an executable program it's task and makes your system more efficient by only copying what is necessary. Now, you might not be interested in DLL files and but in DLL errors. But the reason why I explained you is because DLL file is not a harmful file but a part of your system. Take note that it is not a virus but an error. So you must never delete any delete any DLL file thinking it's the cause of your problem. What is really causing is a DLL file which cannot be executed properly? That's when you get a DLL error. And it usually happens because their might be some DLL files which are missing or they are not placed in the proper directory. Again, it might not be because you have done something. It might have happened because of uninstalling any software which removed the DLL files along with it. You might be able to fix this problem by downloading the DLL file and placing it in the correct directory. But what's point since every time you have some DLL files corrupted or missing, you have to search for it, follow the instructions and place it in the correct directory. Why don't you take an easier and permanent solution for this problem. According to experts, the best way to get rid of all DLL problems is by using a good registry cleaner which has all the library of DLL files and definitions of registry problems. Most of the registry cleaners have not specified the exact DLL file and errors which it can fix except for registry easy which has all the major DLL files mentioned in their official website and have their definitions installed in the software.
