Lost dll file

Hi.

I am not a real techy, but I get the basics and I can follow instructions. I am in the middle of the Andes mountains...so I need to fix myself.

My PC (Windows 7) today says " There was a problem starting msizqh32.dll The specified module could not be found.

I have looked for the dll file named, but it does not come up in a my searches!!!


So if it does not come up in a google search, what can that mean? it must exist because the error message names it, and yet no search on for example dll-files.com bring it up.

How can I repair without the file?

What to do?

Best wishes

James

Hi Alexsea

Run...OK
Type in cmd...OK

(operating sys is 64)

so I type in 'regsvr64' OK

but then, I don't understand your instruction! you want me to type 'path and fileName.dll' or you want me to type the path and file name?

I don't know the path ...how can I find it? I have tried searching the PC under the search tool, but it doesn't find it!

Not sure how to proceed now:(  . I have tried searching the web for the file. it does not appear anywhere!

HI Scout.

Virus scan ...yes I have done one. Nothing came up.

I am not sure what to do with the second part of your info. OK..so there is a similar file in win 7....does that mean something? what is GDIEXT? I don't know what you are suggesting. Laymans terms?

To All

If it were a virus, I would expect it to come up in a web search...telling me what it is...right?

So I am assuming it is not a virus, but something like alexsea is suggesting. An unregistered or lost file.

But where to find it? I can not believe I am the only person who has this file! so why doesn't it come up in a search?

This is very confusing.

Still open to idea

do you have a cd you could use to do a os repair this file is part of system 32 file
April 2, 2012 1:24:38 AM

Hi scout. No I have no CD. The PC is a small one (11.3"), so it has no CD drive anyway.

Are you sure that the file is part of system 32? Does that mean part of the operatind system...windows 7?

FYI: The machine is 64bit.

If it is part of the operating system, then it is even stranger that there is nothing on the web about it.

I have been searching for it's path as in alexsea's idea.....but it does not come up on a full C: drive search...so I assume I have accidentally deleted it.

What to do?

I did try just msizqh some time ago, and yes there are some weird results.

I have not been hit by a virus, I believe my MSAfee stops them.

Do you mean the scan at: http://www.pcfixsoftware.com/32-dll.php?

this one or any well known of them on the page ,post back the name of the software related to this file
April 2, 2012 2:06:59 AM

not su ones are well known...never had to do this before.

The software? on the page in my link, it leads to a download of 'registrybooster.exe

I don't like the idea of downloading some randomn exe file..unless I know it will be a solution, not a route to another problem..at this point, I don't even know what the problem is.

Scout:

If this is a System file...wouldn't we expect it to come up in a google search?
April 2, 2012 2:14:52 AM

Open Windows Start menu and select "Run...".
Type CMD and press Enter (or if you use Windows ME, type COMMAND)).
Type regsvr32 "msizqh32.dll" without quotes and press Enter.

Hi..I just tries this


The response is:


"The Module "msizqh32.dll" failed to load

Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent.DLL files.

The specified module could not be found"



Now what?

Hi All......some progress!!!!

I managed to find the path by going to system configuration, and then acording to the latest suggestion I recieved, I looked in start up programs.

Here is what I found under the start up in system configuration:

Start Up item: MSIDLL

Command C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe msizqh32.dll,DlbkirTT

Location: HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run



I tried the instructions from Alexsea, using ' C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe msizqh32.dll,DlbkirTT ' as the path.

It did not solve the problem, but at least the error message changed, so I know I am in the right area: It now says:


The Module " C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.

Make sure that " C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again



So....next steps??

the ocx file is a active x module used by browser on windows read the foolowing link http://www.file-extensions.org/ocx-file-extension



MM, thanks for this.

I think when it says Dll OR OCX file, it means Dll in this case, because thjat is the original error message refers to.


Doesn't thjis tell us anything:

Start Up item: MSIDLL

Command C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe msizqh32.dll,DlbkirTT

Location: HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

??

Have you uninstalled some programs on your PC recently? Perhaps the msizqh32.dll file had been deleted by accident. You can download msizqh32.dll online and then re-register it.

1. Click the “Start” button, then “Run”

2. Typ in “cmd” or “command”. Enter regsvr32 “path and FileName.dll” at the DOS command prompt followed by pressing the “enter” key. The path is the actual location of the DLL file or directory on the computer’s hard or networked drive. ( If your operating system is 64- bit, please relace regsvr64 to regsvr32)

3. After the DLL has been successfully registered on the computer, a dialogue box will be displayed confirming registration.

Hi Alexsea.

You say I can download msizqh32.dll online: where?
I have looked online but have not found it.

I also checked the link you sent. the file is not mentioned on the site either.

Any other ideas?

Mmm..yes..interesting.

....and some of the dll file names on this page are very similar to msizqh32.dll too! (not sure if that is an indication that they may be related, but it seems possibloe.

I am going to do another virus check with MCAfee first overnight. I will let you know if I find anything. If not, I will be looking for ideas on how to remove it.

Thanks and best wishes
