Run a DLL as an App has encountered a problem

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys,

I just changed my hard disk with all the old files including the ones on C but still installed my old hard disk as master.

When I try to boot up my pc and I get this error message:

Maybe when you changed your hard disk there are files that were accidentally transferred to the other drive that was used by the operating system. If these files are required by Windows it will make your operating system unstable.

But since you already transferred the files it would be impossible to determine which of those are required.

If you think Windows is stable enough and you can still manage working with it then just close the error displayed.

But if you are done seeing that error message every time you open your computer you need to format your hard drive and install Windows again.

But to make sure that this is not an activity done by a virus, you may update your antivirus and then run a full-system scan on your computer.

Try running System File Checker.

You may need to have your Window XP media ready in case the process would need to have it in your computer to overwrite corrupted or add missing system files.

To run this go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, then click on Command Prompt.

A black window will open then type in sfc /scannow. It will start the process and will show you a progress bar.

This will take several minutes to about an hour.

If there are no problems detected windows will just finish but if there are, it will ask you to insert the Windows XP cd that you used to install your copy of Windows into the optical drive.
