Microsoft is constantly updating and improving Windows system files that could be associated with Loader.dll, sometimes resolving your DLL problems may be as simple as updating Windows with the latest Service Pack or other patch that Microsoft releases on an daily basis.
To help you install Windows update, please follow the steps given below:
- Steps used in (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10).
- Click the Start button.
- Type 'Windows Update' into the search box and select it.
- The Windows Update dialog box will appear, if updates are available, click on 'Install Updates' button.
- After installing Windows Update, it is recommended to restart your computer once and then try using the computer.
If issue persists, you can use a built-in utility called 'Microsoft Register Server' (regsvr32.exe) to re-register your Loader.dll file.
In some cases your DLL file may not register properly and so you may get the error. To help you register Loder.dll file, please follow the steps given below:
- Click the Start button.
- Type 'command' in the search box... DO NOT hit ENTER yet!
- While holding 'CTRL + Shift' on your keyboard, hit ENTER.
- You will be prompted with a permission dialog box and click Yes.
- Type the following command: regsvr32 /u Loader.dll and hit ENTER, this will UN-REGISTER your file.
- Now type the following command: regsvr32 /i Loader.dll and hit ENTER, this will RE-REGISTER your file.
- Close the command prompt window and restart the computer once again to check if the problem is fixed.

Boot screen computer


bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.
1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.
2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.
3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
DISKPART and hit enter.
LIST DISK and hit enter.
Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.

4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT
Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.
6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:
D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H:
(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).
Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

Clean Install Windows on a Sony Vaio

Even if a Windows operating system is already installed on your Sony Vaio, it is possible to clean install the same version again or clean install an upgraded version of the Windows operating system over the current operating system.
A clean install of a Windows operating system overwrites the Sony Vaio's current operating system and cleans the hard drive by automatically deleting all of the applications, files and settings that are stored on the Vaio.

Create recovery discs for your Sony Vaio using the Vaio's built-in VAIO Recovery Wizard.
Access Vaio Recovery Wizard by going to the "Start" menu and clicking "Help and Support." Follow the screens in the VAIO Recovery Wizard to make recovery CDs for your computer.
Transfer files and programs that you want to save onto an external storage device, such as an external hard drive or a CD.
To transfer the files and programs to an external hard drive, plug the external hard drive into a USB port on the computer and drag and drop files from the computer into the external drive window.
To transfer the files and programs to CD, open a CD-burning software and choose the "Data Disc" option, upload all of the files into the program and "Burn" or "Write" them to the disc.


Place the Windows installation CD or DVD into the disc drive of your Sony Vaio.
If the computer is already on, reboot the computer.
If not, turn the computer on to boot the installation disc.

Follow the onscreen prompts to go through the installation wizard for the Windows operating system.
Enter the product key from the Windows operating system packaging, accept the terms of the operating system license and, if prompted to choose a type of partition for the Sony Vaio, select "NTFS."
Click the "Install Now" button on the last page of the installation wizard.
The operating system installs to the Sony Vaio.

Wait for the installation of the operating system to complete, which can take up to two hours on some systems.
Once the installation is finished, reboot the Sony Vaio and the computer should boot up to the operating system screen.

Emachines T4010 won't start up, says image checksum, and that an image is corrupted


Receiving a bad image checksum error message when upgrading a computer to Windows XP means that a Windows system file such as user32.dll is damaged. This error occurs when any damaged system file is encountered that isn't overwritten during Setup. The repair process for this error involves voiding the damaged dynamic link library file from the DOS command line prompt and replacing it with a new copy from the Windows XP disk.

Insert a clean Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (ME) or Microsoft Windows 98 Edition startup disk into the computer, and hold the reset button on the front of the computer until the system commences rebooting. Navigate the Windows startup menu with the keyboard's directional keys and select 'Start Computer with CD-ROM Support'. Hit "Enter" to continue. Write down your CD-ROM's drive letter on a piece of paper. At the command prompt, type "Drive:" without quotes (Drive should be replaced with the drive letter on which Windows is installed), and press "Enter." Type "cd windows\system32" without quotes, and press "Enter." Type "ren user32.dll user32.old" without quotes and again press "Enter." This renames your damaged user32.dll file so it is not recognized by the system, but still physically exists as a backup if needed in the future. Eject the Windows ME or 98 disk, and insert the Windows XP disk. At the command prompt, type "extract CDROMDrive:\i386\user32.dl_ Drive:\windows\system32\user32.dll" without quotes, replacing CDROMDrive with the CD-ROM's drive letter that you made a note of earlier, and replacing Drive with the system's drive letter on which Windows is installed. Hit "Enter" to execute the command. This process extracts a new copy of the user32.dll file to your hard disk, from the Windows XP CD. The new file will be found in the Windows/System32 directory. Restart the system by holding the reset button on the front of the tower until reboot commences.

My computer is saying the sims 2 double deluxe installed but i cant find it no where on my computer and when i put it in the install comes up and it says its already installed but cant find it


The game files are in the Program Files folder of your C drive. You can actually perform a file search from File Explore. However, if you are talking about your saved games, then those will be in your User folder in some location depending on which Windows Operating System you have installed.

Redirct and error at 0x00000 when closeing IE or FireFox


Well it is quite obvious however. I ll include manual removal instructions. Please follow the steps carefully.
There will be 2 executable files which are Sysinternals Antivirus.exe and svchost.exe. Svchost is invoked by the other executable. There may be another one named alggui.exe
You have to kill these two processes. First of all you have to do this:
  1. Start the Task manager by right clicking on the Taskbar.
  2. Go to Processes.
  3. Observe the processes.
  4. Right Click on processes and select End process for Sysinternals Antivirus.exe and alggui.exe. You will not be able to kill the svchost.exe however since there will be more than one and each represents a Valid system process. To find the exact process run by the file which resides in the "Program Files", I recommend you to use the Security Task manager for Windows.Here is the Link
  5. Use the tool and kill the exact process.
Locating malicious files. The list of files I have already mentioned. But there are more.
  • C:Program Filesskynet.dat
  • C:Program Filessvchost.exe
  • C:Program Filesalggui.exe
  • %UserProfile%DesktopSysinternals Antivirus.lnk
  • %UserProfile%Start MenuProgramsSysinternals AntivirusSysinternals Antivirus.lnk
  • C:Program Filesadc_w32.dll. You must unregister this. Otherwise it will run again.
  • C:Program FilesSysinternals AntivirusSysinternals Antivirus.exe
  • %UserProfile%Start MenuProgramsSysinternals Antivirus
  • C:Program FilesSysinternals Antivirus
  • In variants there will be additional files (Sysinternals Antivirus.exe adc_w32.dll alggui.exe extra1.dat extra2.dat nuar.old skynet.dat svchost.exe wp3.dat wp4.dat dbsinit.exe wispex.html ccsmn.exe ccsmn151.acf csmn151.ltd ccsmn151.lti ccsmn151_0.acb ccsmn151_0.aci ccsmn151_0.mt ccsrr.exe wmharun.log wmrun.log Sysinternals Antivirus.lnk)
You have to search and delete each and every file.
We have to set some additional things in order to see the Hidden and System files which are protected.
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Go to Tools and then Folder Options.
  3. Click on View tab.
  4. Under the Option "Hidden Files and Folders", set it to "Show ..."
  5. Untick the "Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended)" as well.
  6. Now go to C partition and check whether you can see .sys and other hidden files including the System Volume Information folder. If so the procedure was successful. Otherwise you have to edit the registry or have to use the DOS command window to locate and delete these files.
  7. Use Windows search tool to search the files. Before searching set the More Advanced Options. Check for "All files and Folders". Drop down "More advanced options" and tick the Search System Folders, Search Hidden files and folders, Search Sub-folders options. Then do the search. If you find any file or folder you have to delete it. Before deleting, there is one more thing to do.
  • You have to stop the Startup Processes.
  • Click on the Start menu and hit on Run. Or type in Run if you have Vista.
  • Type in the Run box this. msconfig
  • Hit Enter.
  • Go to "Startup" tab. Examine the processes and remove the unwanted ones. You can browse for the valid ones.Specially note the Autorun.inf files. You must remove them if exist.Remember the path to each malicious file. Then uncheck the boxes. Hit Apply button. Then OK button.
  • Do not Restart the System when you have been asked.
Stopping the System Restore services
  1. Go to Properties of My Computer.
  2. Go to System Restore.
  3. Turn off.
Now you are ready to delete the files. Click on each file and Click SHIFT+DEL. Do not Right Click and Delete.
Alternative way if Hidden files and folders are now shown
  • Get the Run box again and type in cmd and press Enter.
  • Type cd and hit Enter.
  • Now you will be in the System drive (C: most probably)
  • You have to use: cd foldername to move within folders.
  • Example: Type cd program files and hit Enter to go in to Program Files.CD denotes Change Directory.
  • To change the Partition you have to type Partition: and hit enter.
  • Example: D:
  • Locate each file and delete Except the adc_w32.dll because we have to Unregister it.
  • Go to each location which I have included here as well as shown in the msconfig tool.
  • Then use DIR /a /q to get the list of files.
  • Type DIR /a /q and hit enter.
  • Note: Note the spaces.
  • Now if you see the files type this and hit enter.
  • attrib -s -h -a -r
  • Then type Del with the file name.
  • Example: Del alggui.exe
  • What the attribute command does is changing the File attributes to normal ( - is used to remove the attributes. S is for System, H is for Hidden, A is for Archive, R is for Read Only).
  • Make sure you go to Root of each partition and check for Autorun.inf files (There may be batch files as well - .bat files, exe files etc. Check whether they are valid executables using the browser)
  • Now that part is done!
Unregistering the DLL file before Deleting:
  • Get the Command Windows again using cmd.
  • Type in Regsvr32 /? and hit enter. If you get a Dialog Box that means its functioning.
  • If you do not have it obtain from here. Place the file in Windows/System32.
  • Type in Regsrv32 /u C:Pathadc_w32.dll and hit enter.
  • Path is the path to the file. It may be in the Program Files or Windows or WindowsSystem32. Use Search or Command Windows to find it. (Might be in the Startup in msconfig as well).
  • You can run this command without the Command Windows as well. Just enter it in the Run box and hit Enter. If you do properly it will show you a dialog box containing the Success message.
