Hello ebrnic1

(01) Boot into Safe Mode and see if the problem persists. I suspect it will not.

(02) Perform a "Clean Boot" and boot into Normal Mode. (see HERE for how to perform a "Clean Boot")

(03) If it boots in OK (w/out the missing DLL error), then there's something trying to load that is unable to. This can be for a number of reasons. But 1st....

(04) Do you have a Zen Micro? If you do, re-install the drivers for it and see if the problem goes away.

(05) If you do have a Zen Micro but the problem persists after reinstalling its drivers, try "registering" the DLL.
(A) Click on START
(B) Click on RUN
(C) type in the RUN box (verbatim):
regsvr32 CTConfig.dll

Do you by any chance own a Creative Mp3 player? If so, reinstall the drivers for it. This is a part of Creatives software, normally for MP3 players, but they could have put it into other drivers as well like webcams etc.

Boot the computer in safe mode if you cannot start it normally.

Wait until the initial laptop screen vanishes, then start pressing F8
A Windows Startup options screen will appear
Select Safe Mode and press enter twice
Windows will now load into Safe mode.
Go into Start - Control Panel - Add Remove Software
Uninstall any Creative software you have and restart Windows.
When the laptop first shuts down, Unplug any Creative USB devices, webcams, Mp3 palyers etc.
Once Windows boots normally, reinstall the software.

It seems you have some Creative products on your lap and you have uninstalled it or it got currepted. But your registry still have the registration for CTCONFIG.DLL.

So, if you have any software from creative then please re-install it.

  • If you need not to use creative product, then
  • goto Start -> Run
  • type cmd and press enter
  • This will open command prompt
  • at command prompt jut type the following (asuming that you have Creative ZEN Media).
  • Regsvr32 /u C:\Program Files\Creative\ZEN Media Explorer\ctconfig.dll
  • it will un-register the ctconfig.dll entry and message will be disappear.

Please post your feed back in add a comment.

I am having problems with my volume.... it says: this applicationi has failed to start because vCOMCTL32.dll was not found. re-installing the application may fix the problem.

go here

scroll down and click on free download
  • Open the zip-file you downloaded from
    • 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.

Right after you turn on the pc, go into the bios. Usally by hitting f1, f2, or del. just keep hitting those 3 keys as it boots. Once in the bios, find the boot manager option and disable it. hit f10 to save changes and exit and your pc should restart.
