- A missing DLL file or file not found error, which usually happens due to the deletion of a file by mistake or because of a malware infection. An example is “The file wgalogon.dll was not found” error.
- A corrupt DLL file, which usually gets corrupted due to various reasons like incorrect installation/uninstallation of applications, virus infections, faulty device drivers or programs, may generate an error message like “Explorer has caused a problem in wmp.dll.”
- Overwriting of a DLL file by another DLL file may also generate an error. An example of this type of error, is the Welcome Screen problem in Windows which is caused by the overwriting of the login file MSGINA.dll by a file named Rtlgina2.dll, which is used in the wireless network card driver of Netgear.
- Often, the root cause of a problem may lie in the Windows registry. Corrupt or invalid registry entries may be behind recurring DLL errors.

If the cause is malware, you must scan your system with an updated and reliable anti-malware. If the problem is because of an obsolete or corrupt device driver, you need to find and install an appropriate driver. In all these cases, it is recommended that you scan your Windows registry with the help an automatic registry cleaner to eradicate any remaining trace of a DLL error.
