Why it is important to keep your operating system and software updated

Operating system and software manufacturers constantly release new updates to fix any security holes, bugs, or errors that may be present in their products. It is important that you regularly download new updates to beef up your system?s security and resolve any performance related issues.

Furthermore, ?to ensure your system?s security is never compromised, install reliable antimalware tools, such as STOPzilla Antivirus and Spyware Cease. Malware, such as virus, worms, adware, and spyware deliberately corrupt the DLL files by altering the codes embedded in them. As a result, a DLL error is generated every time an application, program, or operating system tries to execute the infected DLL.

Another source of recurring DLL errors is a corrupt system registry. The registry stores information regarding the DLL files and you may encounter frequent DLL errors in case these reference points are incorrectly modified or get corrupt due to malware infection. To ensure your registry?s good health and prevent DLL errors due to registry issues, scan your registry, using a reliable registry cleaning tool, such as RegServe. It is an advanced tool that allows you to perform custom registry scans to identify and fix DLL errors.
