Restoring Application DLLs 6:57-7:19 The resolution depends upon what type of DLL is involved. If it was an application DLL, you canmanually copy a known good copy of the DLL back into the appropriate location in the file system.Repair the installation if possible using the application installer, uninstall the application and thenreinstall it or restore the system to a prior restore point. Restoring Operating System DLLs 7:20-7:49 If the missing DLL is part of the Windows operating system, then you would need to use slightly different methods. For example you could manually copy a known good copy of the DLL back into the appropriate location in the file system, restore the system to a prior restore point or run the System File Checker Utility from the command prompt, the command is sfc /scannow. This utility scans all system files and replaces missing, corrupt or incorrect versions of these files. Application Compatibility 7:50-8:33 Let's now discuss application compatibility. Some older applications may not run properly on newer versions of Windows. If you encounter this problem there are several different options available. You can upgrade to a newer version of the application that is compatible with the current version of Windows. You can also run the application in compatibility mode. This tricks the application into thinking it's running on an earlier version of Windows. Right click on the application's executable and select the compatibility tab. You can let Windows identify the best compatibility settings using the compatibility troubleshooter or you can manually specify which version of Windows you want to emulate for this application. Slow System Performance 8:34-9:58 The next issue we will discuss is slow system performance. Several things can cause slow performance on a Windows system. First, the system could have been affected with malware. To prevent this, run full anti- malware scans on a regular basis. Second, the system could have inadequate memory. If this is the case add more memory to the system. Third, the system could have inadequate video hardware. Newer versions of Windows are muchmore video intensive than older ones were, so avoid using integrated video adapters. A video adapter board with lots of video memory will perform much better. Four, the system's page file configuration could've slowed the system down. You can improve performance by moving the page file to a disk other than the system disk. Creating page files on multiple storage devices can also increase system performance. Fifth, the system could have overfull and heavily fragmented storage devices. If your disk is heavily fragmented and very full you should upgrade to a bigger disk and keep it defragged regularly. Finally, the system could have unnecessary startup applications. You can use the msconfig utility to see which applications are configured to start at boot. For applications you don't use very often, you can configure them to not start on boot. You can also uninstall any applications on the system that aren't needed anymore.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
