Dll missing


This problem occurs when the Previous version isn't uninstalled properly. The thing is that when a software is uninstalled some files often remain in the system. These files are ofter referred to as "Leftovers".

To resolve this issue Uninstall your software (i.e. Previous version of MS Office) using a special Uninstaller software. You can find one if you google these words "uninstaller".
Alternatively you may also find a complete guide on how to fix this problem at this link

How to completely uninstall a software


How to remove leftover files,folders and registry keys after uninstalling a software:
OK, first lets see what actually happens when we install a software?
When we install a software it copies some of its files usually in C:\Program Files , C:\Windows\System32 , Registry.
If we uninstall a Software from Add/Remove Program ( Win+R --> appwiz.cpl), it removes some files from C:\program Files only.
It will not remove the softwares supporting files and folders from System32 or Registry.
Now lets see how to remove these leftover files:
I use a small freeware utility called Revounistaller for this process.
What is Revounistaller ?
Revo Uninstaller helps you to uninstall and remove unwanted programs installed on your computer even if you have problems uninstalling and cannot uninstall them from "Windows Add or Remove Programs" control panel applet. Revo Uninstaller is a much faster and more powerful alternative to "Windows Add or Remove Programs" applet! With its advanced and fast algorithm, Revo Uninstaller analyzes an application's data before uninstall and scans after you uninstall an application. After the program's regular uninstaller runs, you can remove additional unnecessary files, folders and registry keys that are usually left over on your computer. Even if you have a broken installation, Revo Uninstaller scans for an application's data on your hard disk drives and in the Windows registry and shows all found files, folders and registry keys so you can delete them.
With its unique "Hunter mode", Revo Uninstaller offers you some simple, easy to use, but effective and powerful approaches to manage (uninstall, stop, delete, disable from auto starting) and to get information about your installed and/or running programs.

Try using Revo Uninstaller to search for leftover files from the Fix8 install. http://www.revouninstaller.com
Once you install the software, try doing a "Forced Uninstall" to remove any leftover files/registry keys from the Fix8 program.

Hi there.
You have to manually delete the leftover files that the uninstall didn't delete, just brows the PC for the associated files (from program files etc) and pop them in the recycle bin.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Disney Princess Magical Dress Up


I had the same problem. Googled my problem and found free download software called "Revo Uninstaller."
1st step - download "Revo Uninstaller" 100% freebie
2nd step - Select Advanced scan per it will delete any leftover files, I believe the selection will default to "moderate", but select Advanced - it states that it's slower but it went pretty quickly. the next steps are just sequences of selecting "next". it will show you what it found before selecting deleting for the leftover files - the file was in bold text, which was an alpha numeric title - ex. 74C55......... Be sure to check this box. It's pretty easy and it works. I went to the Add/Remove folder and the Disney Magic Dress Up was no where in sight.
