My newest puter will not start, it gives a DLLs error message. I don't know what DLLs are and have no idea how to fix it. I'm posting via the old mostly junk E tower. We just renewed our Norton a few days ago I wonder if that had anything to do with it? Any help would be much appreciated.
could be a lot of reasons. could be a worm or virus though thats a pretty malicious and unsubtle one. Could be your hard drive itself going to hell for some reason.
it just sort of happens, I've worked consistenly with about 90 computers and I've only seen this 3 or 4 times over the course of 6 years. Every time it happens the solution is to just start fresh.
You can probably still access DOS to backup files OR you can skip the reformat and repair the windows install to backup what you need BUT don't be fooled by the repair working because it probably will break again.
We reloaded everything from the recovery discs and then redownloaded the Norton which then did a system scan. While it was scanning the thing suddenly shut down and restarted and said something about device driver conflict. now I am beginning to seriously suspect the Norton.
