Many times, two or more programs can 'share' the same dll file. Each of the programs use the file to execute similar processes. An example of this would be a printer driver -any program that uses that printer will need to call it's dll driver in order to communicate. Sometimes when users install and uninstall programs in Windows, a dll file can be accidentally erased. Other times, a file can be damaged by faulty program updates or re-installs. There are a number of ways that a dll file can lead to a Windows error. The best thing to do is 'feed' Windows the file it is looking for and let Windows figure out where it is needed.
