Windows Shell Common Dll RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I keep getting an error "Windows Shell Common Dll is not responding" I have no idea what this is. It occurs when I try to acess sound, screen savers, pointers from the control pannel. I have gone to both HP and Microsoft Help and have found no solutions.

  • it sounds that a dll is missing. you can repair it easily if you have a vista's bootable disc. just boot from the disc and then click on repair your computer and then click on start up repair option and it will do the rest.

    or, if the problem is not solved then insert the vista dvd and then open the command prompt as administrator and then execute the following command..

    C:\sfc scannow

    and then hit enter. it will automatically repair all your problems.

  • I seem to have a similar problems, only I can't find the vista dvd anywhere! Is there another way of repairing the missing dll?
