Windows Shell Common DLL Failure
» Windows shell common DLL has stopped working, When i try to open the input language and click Change Keyboards...
DLL is short for Dynamic Link Library, containing executable functions or data that can be used by Windows applications. DLL provides one or more particular functions, program accesses the functions by creating either a static or dynamic link to the DLL. A static link remains constant during program execution while a dynamic link is created by the program as needed. DLLs can also contain just data. Most of the DLL files have .dll, or .exe extensions.
The best thing about DLL files is that they can be used across multiple applications at the same time. Windows operating systems come with a few pre-installed DLLs that can be used by any application installed on it. Most of the other DLLs are usually developed to be used by a specific application and are loaded only when you launch that application.
What are the common causes of Windows DLL errors (otherwise called DLL Hell)? Firstly, Windows DLL errors occur when a newly installed application replaces a DLL with an older version. Next, Windows DLL errors also occur if a shared DLL is deleted when you uninstall an application. Thirdly is infestation by malicious software/viruses, such as Trojan:Win32/Comisproc. Last but not least are the corrupted or outdated registry entries.
To fix all these dll errors, DLL Suite is designed for you and has been acclaimed by its users across the world ever since it was launched (click its icon to have a clear look of its interface).
Or you can use DLL Suite to download a clean and safe version of that dll file, and replace it. DLL Suite contains a large update library of dll files, including .exe file and .sys files. It is able to fix any missing dll file error, or exe virus infection or BSOD(caused by viruses like VirTool:Win32/CeeInject.gen!IX).
