which states (after my editing):

The problem is related to DELL DATASAFE LOCAL BACKUP on your machine. It's the backup program that comes with your DELL.

STservice.exe is an unimportant part of this backup program.
It's just the scheduler. You won't need it.

The problem consists in the fact that the program can't find
its resources.

It seems to me that you cannot download DELL DATASAFE LOCAL BACKUP from any site on the internet.

Here is my solution:

1. If you can find DELL DATASAFE LOCAL BACKUP on the DELL DRIVERS AND UTILITIES CD that comes with your Notebook, Uninstall the whole program, ... and install it again from the CD.

Can't start STLog.dll

There may be a startup entry still trying to start up the program - check using msconfig.
Also check services.msc and if there is any entry related to Dell Data safe or STService stop it from starting.

ST log.dll not working. Can you help ?

This is a problem related to "Dell DataSafe Online" system. Have you ran a Cleanup tool (Specially McAfee)? You have to be careful when you use Cleanup utilities or Registry Cleaners. Because they are extremely dangerous if not used carefully since they would delete Shared and Using Registry Entries and Files without letting you know.
  • Have you tried to do a System restore? If you didn't please do.
  • Just type rstrui in the "search box" and press enter. Its a simple process. Restore the machine back to a date which the utility was working fine. You can select the "Recommended Store" or a Store Point of your choice.
  • Or you can do the following. But you has to have the Software with you.
  • In your software, try to locate the Stlog.dll file. If you have found it you have to copy and paste it here.
  • %ProgramFiles%\Dell DataSafe Local Backup\Components\ProtectRP\Stlog.dll
  • Lets re register the DLL file now.
  • In the "search box" in the "Start Menu", type cmd and hit enter.
  • Type this and hit enter.
  • Regsvr32 Root:\Program Files\Dell DataSafe Local Backup\Components\ProtectRP\Stlog.dll
  • Root is the Partition which you have installed Windows on. C is the default.
  • You will see a Success message. If so, the DLL is registered successfully.

  • If you were unable to locate the DLL file or unable to do a System restore, you have to uninstall and reinstall the program or you have to stop Loading it when the Computer Starts.
  • Type msconfig in the "search box" and hit enter.
  • Go to the "Startup" tab.
  • Check for the Specific Software (Datasafe) or related components. Clear the Check Boxes. Then it will not be loaded again. Most probably it will be STServices.exe
  • You can uninstall the program using the Control Panel. But not sure whether it removes all the Components.

Feel free to contact me again.
If your problem got solved after following these steps, please be kind enough to RATE the answer as well.
Have a good day and thanks for contacting Fixya!

Stlog.dll is not responding

It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.


for a free one its pretty darned good !

From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.

Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

When its done let it clean anything it finds.

Its where I always start with an infected machine.

As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

It may just be a "leaking application"

These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

May I suggest you download

It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

When vista starts up I get a message that stlog.dll is not respon

Going to third parties and fixing the registry, etc. can spell disaster.

Do you have the system restore discs made for your laptop. If you did prior to the error, use them to fix the boot record.

If not, go through the safe mode using F8 key use command prompt.

Do a system restore to when it worked. That should fix the problem.

Error - Kernel32.dll

Microsoft defines Kernel32 errors as follows: "The Kernel32.dll file is a 32-bit dynamic link library file that is found in Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millenium Edition (Me). The Kernel32.dll file handles memory management, input/output operations, and interrupts. When you start Windows, Kernel32.dll is loaded into a protected memory space so that other programs do not take over that memory space. On occasion, you may receive an invalid page fault (IPF) error message. This error message occurs when a program tries to access the Kernel32.dll protected memory space. Occasionally, the error message is caused by one particular program, and other times the error message is provoked by multiple files and programs."
