Question about Computers & Internet
Does Internet Explorer start or does it fail to load and displays the .dll error message?
Typically, .dll error messages are caused by 1. out of date Operating System, 2. viruses / spyware / malware on the computer that have over-written valid .dll files, 3. a failed program install
Since IE came with the OS, options 1 or 2 are more likely the cause of the problem. And, yes, you can still get viruses / spyware / malware while on a modem.
Make sure your antivirus is up to date and scan your hard drive for viruses (if you do not have an antivirus program - get one for free - search for AVG)
Make sure you have a spyware /malware detection program, update it and scan your system for spyware/malware (free from Microsoft - search for Windows Defender, other companies also offer free personal versions)
Very important - do both steps above, reboot and repeat 3 times. The computer holds the settings from the last 3 successful reboots, called Control Sets, in the Registry. Scanning the current Control Set only cleans it. It does not clean the other sets and viruses /spyware / malware can be re-introduced to your system if you perform a "Last Known Good" boot or use System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.
