How to get rid of a "RUN DLL" message?


First of all it might be a virus so you should follow this link as for a Great Malware Removal Guide:
http://www.agady.com/great-malware-removal-guide-or-how-to-remove-svchost-exe-malware/
Now it might be a faulty software you've installed which is trying to use a file or resource you don't have so what we need to do is:
1. on your keyboard hit start+R (It'll give you a RUN command line).
2. Type MSCONFIG (hit enter)
3. go to STARTUP (Tab above) and click "Disable all"
4. go to SERVICES (Tab above) and tick "hide all microsoft services" then click "disable all"
5. hit ok and restart.
6. if DLL error is gone, start adding back startup items and services (as described in line 3 and 4) until DLL error returns and then you'll know which starup item or service caused the problem in the first place.

Am getting 1721 errors on my computer, can you tell me how i can fix it ?


Here you go. This is long winded but should fix you up.
Error 1721 is a common problem for many different Windows systems, shown when the installation you're trying to perform develops a problem and needs to be fixed. If you have this error, it's recommended that you're able to first fix any problems that could be inside your Windows system, and then cure the specific issues that the Windows Installer program has on your PC. This tutorial is going to show you exactly how to do that...
This error will typically show like this:

  • Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personal or package vendor.

The problem with this error is actually caused by a very simple issue - the Windows Installer program that is used to install the various files & software onto your PC is actually damaged or corrupted & preventing your system from installing the program you want. This can be caused by a number of problems, including everything from having corrupt registry settings to the Installer program on your system being damaged. To fix this, you first need to make sure that Windows Installer is okay, and then get rid of any further system errors on your computer.
The first step to resolving this error is to "register" and "unregister" the Windows Installer on your system. This is a program which installs all the programs that you want onto your PC, and is constant on every Windows installation. The problem that often causes error 1721 is the way in which Windows often cannot read the Windows Installer program, because it's not "registered". Registering a program basically tells Windows where to look for it on your system, and it's often the case that this stored reference is either damaged or deleted by accident. To ensure this is not a problem, you need to be able to type the following into your system:

  • Load up "CMD" (click "Start" > Run > type cmd)
  • Type msiexec u/unregister
  • Type msiexec /register
  • Try reinstaling the program you wanted to

If you try this and find it does not work, then it's recommended you then use a program by Microsoft called the "Windows Installer Cleanup Utility". This is a new program which basically cleans up all the settings and options associated with the Windows Installer program; meaning that if you have any problems with the Windows Installer on your PC, they should be fixed. You may also wish to install Windows Installer 4.5, which will basically upgrade the Windows Installer program on your system, which should resolve many cases of the 1721 error.
It's also highly recommended that you use a "registry cleaner" to fix any of the errors that are on your Windows system. A registry cleaner is a type of software tool that basically scans through the registry database of your PC and fixes any of the problems that are inside it. The registry database contains all the settings, files and options for Windows, and is where everything from your most recent emails to your desktop wallpaper are kept. It's basically like a library for your system which is continually being used to help your software run correctly. Unfortunately, the registry is continually being damaged & corrupted, leading it to become highly ineffective and erroneous. To ensure this problem is not causing the 1721 error, you should clean through your system with a registry cleaner tool.

I have a Dell desktop with Vista windows.Later it takes very long time to start and freezes a lot. since i switched from Cable to Verizon Fios about a month ago it is gotten much worse


You would installed a lot of softwares in it. By installing more softwares and programs, they were saved in startup. They start running when you start windows. You have to disable programs from startup. You can disable programs from startup by going on Start > Run > msconfig > startup > Disable all programs. Your computer's speed is boosted.

On start up windows installer wants me to install a program


You could uninstall the Jasc program from Add/Remove programs, if it is installed on your system, and you no longer use it.
You can run the windows installer cleanup utility available here to clean up the installer files. If you do so, I recommend you back up the registry with Erunt before running the utility, and set a restore point.
It might be time to do some system maintenance.(see here). Run chkdsk to look for file corruption (instructions here and here) and scan for malware (use these protocols)
You can, however, use msconfig to stop the startups, if your follow these instructions. (or these). Just don't go nuts or you'll incapacitate your system. Better to correct the cause of the problem than just plug the hole in the ****...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

What is error 1721..........How do I reinstall HP Updates?


This is an error commonly witnessed when you try to uninstall a program using the "Add or Remove Programs" in Microsoft Windows XP. The message itself will read: "Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personal or package vendor."

I Googled your error and this is what I got. As far as your update question, I think you can just go to HP website, and redownload and reinstall all the updates that you are in need of. If you are speaking of Windows Updates, you can redownload those to. Just go to Microsoft website and in their search box, type in reinstall updates; of course, you will also have to type in there which updates you need to reinstall. Hope this helps.
