Time to run CHKDSK/F if you can or restore your OS. It has been caused by a registry error and there are a number of ways that can happen, from removing power before shut dow to, if Win7/Vista, trying to hack a way in without a password.

Advrcntr2.dll is missing


CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

To install advrcntr2.dll, follow these instructions:

  • Open the zip-file you downloaded from DLL-files.com.
    • Extract the .dll-file to a location on your computer. We recommend you to unzip the file to the directory of the program that is requesting the file. If that doesn't work, you will have to extract the file to your system directory. By default, this is C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP, Vista, 7).
    • Make sure overwrite any existing files (but make a backup copy of the original file).
    • Reboot your computer.
    • If the problem still occurs, try the following:
      • 1. Press Start and select Run.
      • 2. Type CMD and press Enter (or if you use Windows ME, type COMMAND).
      • 3. Type regsvr32 "filename".dll and press Enter.

A FILE WINDOWS SYSTEM ROOT 32 IS MISSING OR CORRUPT


Try starting in 'SAFE MODE'.
Click START
Click RUN
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type 'CHKDSK C: /F' and press ENTER.
If you are prompted to shutdown & restart to run the "check disk", do so.
During the restart, "check disk" will find/repair any file-system problems, and then restart in "normal" mode.
