Hi everyone,

Am using a friend’s laptop just to get online and look for some help. My laptop, Sony VAIO P6100 has a real error problem. The OS is Windows 7. The problem is that i can’t run any program or use my browser to get online. Generally on every program i run i am getting a “chrome.exe- system error”. The message is that; “the program can’t start because LPK.dll is missing from your computer try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.”

lpk.dll missing is a pain

I can’t do anything with the pc. Nothing is responding. I have tried to restore the system to the time it worked best but it was not successful. I have also used a System Restore Disk i created some time before to run the restore, it never worked. I have also tried to boot with F8 and all the other way i can think of.

I can’t run a registry editor on the laptop and even if it could, the same error persists. I have thought of getting to a technician to fix this but i can cost me a lot. The Microsoft guys request £46 to fix the problem. I never made a back up of my files and losing them is not an option. Seeking help from here is the only option i have got for now. Any advice will be appreciated.

It seems that your problem is a little bit of a difficult one. Now, if I understand it correctly, you indicated that when you try to run or open any program you always get an error message. Though, we can just say that this is a system problem, this certain error looks more like a virus infection for me. As thus, I will be providing you with some solutions to try to fix the problem, both for just the system problem and for the virus problem as well.

  1. If it’s just a simple system problem, first you need to boot into safe mode. If it’s not working, then try highlighting the first choice which is “repair my computer”. Once there, you will be given some options, look for the option for command prompt. Use that option, and once you are in the command prompt window type “sfc/scannow” without the quotations. Then press enter. This command scans your Operating System for any issues with the system files and registry entries, and if there are any, it will automatically fix it. This might take sometime, after which just type exit and restart your computer.
  2. Download Super Antispyware Portable from a working computer, and save it on a flash drive or USB thumb drive. Boot your computer into safe mode with networking (with the F8 options). Then if you are able to, attach the USB thumb drive on the computer and run the program you just downloaded. This program is used to scan for any virus infection, but is designed to run under a .com file extension and in theory will work with the issue that you are having right now.
  3. You might also want to try and uninstall the said program that’s giving you problems. In this case it’s Google chrome.
  4. Another way to getting around this problem is to download the LPK.dll file from the internet transfer it to your computer. Again, you will need to use a different computer for this one. You can download the lpk.dll file from this site. Once download, transfer it to your computer and copy the file to the C:/windows/system32 folder. Then restart the computer.
  5. If everything does not work, then the last option is to re-install the operating system.

I guess LPK.DLL is a language pack that is missing from your system. Have you try running the System File Checker? Just simply launch the Command Prompt and right-click on it and then select Run as Administrator. And then enter the following command:

sfc /scannow

This will scan and replace incorrect, damaged or corrupted system files on your computer. If this won't work, boot into Safe Mode again and click Start and type System Restore in the text field or type the command in the Command Prompt:

rstrui.exe and press enter

Select a restore point that will work. If nothing works and you think you have done everything to fix it, you need to back up your important files and reformat your computer.
