The application has failed to start because nspr4.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Hi Sandy,

Below is my suggestion on how to solve your problem. I already encountered that kind of error before and I just did simple solution for it. Please do the following:

1.   Go to my computer.

2.   Open your drive C.

3.   Go to Windows.

4.   Locate the bcmwtry file.

5.   Rename bcmwtry.

6.   Delete after renaming it.

Make sure that you rename the file under C:/windows/system32

This should work because I have tried this solution and it really worked for me. I hope it does the same thing for you. Have a great day. Let me know if it will work. Thanks.

Nspr4.dll errors are caused by deletion or corruption of the nspr4 DLL file.

nspr4.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus issue, or even a failure.

In your case, I assume that it was caused due to updating of Windows. It often happens that Windows Updates are not compatible with current applications. The updates change the registry and lead to .dll errors. 

I would warn you not to download nspr4.dll from the internet. It's much better if you could copy the original one. 

However, it seems that you don't have that choice. So, re-install Opera.
