There are many ways that your PC’s DLL files might become corrupted. In order to fix this issue, you have to install a new piece of the DLL file or re-install the application.

1. Download unicows.dll.

2. Copy the DLL file inside “%SystemRoot%System32”.

3. Start Command Prompt with administrator privilege. Then, execute this line:
regsvr32 unicows.dll

4. Restart your PC.

I’m sure that the error won’t bother you anymore.

You should also check your PC for viruses because the virus might even corrupt the new DLL file. Use any good antivirus, for example, Norton, Kaspersky etc.
