Hi Adrien,.

According to the description, it seems that you are having problems with the startup error message and the computer doesn't wake up from its sleep.

Follow the suggestions below for a possible solution:

Method 1: I suggest you perform the clean boot and check if the problem persists.

Place the computer in a clean boot state, then check if it helps. You can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Hello

    Cannot find this file on Google so you probably dodged some software malware and you should do a
    very thorough control. Message on how to remove the error message if still it y
    After the audits of malware.

    If you need search malware here's my recommendations - they will allow you to
    scrutiny and the withdrawal without ending up with a load of spyware programs running
    resident who can cause as many questions as the malware and may be more difficult to detect as the
    cause.

    No one program cannot be used to detect and remove any malware. Added that often
    easy to detect malicious software often comes with a much harder to detect and remove the
    payload. So its best to be now too thorough than paying the high price later. Check
    with an extreme overdose point and then run the cleaning only when you are very
    that the system is clean.

    It can be made repeatedly in Mode safe - F8 tap you start, however, you should
    also run in regular Windows when you can.

    Hi Nicole,.

    1. what changes have been made to your computer before this error message?

    Follow these steps and check if the problem persists.

    Step 1:

    I suggest you put your computer in a clean boot State.
     
    Put your boot system helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you can go ahead and disable or uninstall the same.

     
    Note: Put your computer in normal mode by following step 7 of the hyperlink after you identify the third-party application that caused the problem to occur

    Step 2:

    It can also be caused by a virus, I wish that you run a full scan of the PC using your updated security software or a scanner using the Microsoft Safety Scanner.

  • RunDLL error message: "Werconcpl.dll is not a valid Win32 application" keeps reappearing

    Hello

    I have a Windows 8 operating system and about 2 weeks, I've loaded my computer and an error titled, "RunDLL" appears indicating:

    "There was a problem starting.

    C:\Windows\system32\WerConCpl.dll

    C:\Windows\system32\WerConCpl.dll is not a valid Win32 application. »

    This error message is always popping up to date.

    More information:

    -Another error will appear again once every 30 seconds or so, no matter if I press OK to close. That said, if I left my computer alone for long periods, fifty, maybe even a hundred of these messages would pile on my desk.

    -Many sources I've found seem to point to the idea that the cause of this is a process, probably malware, is set to run this WerConCpl.dll file at startup.  I have not all antivirus programs before that happened. But shortly after that, I installed Malwarebytes and I performed complete tests on Windows Defender and Malwarebytes. Initially, there are some questions that Malwarebytes had found and quarantined, but nothing on Windows Defender. I also tried to clean with a program of free registry: CCleaner. None of them were able to resolve the problem.

    -I then went to my task manager to start Services. I disabled some third-party services that I use, but it is not necessary to start. Other than that, I have not found all third-party programs that are strange or unusual. The rest were associated with my internet (wide com) and bluetooth devices, or Microsoft and Intel.

    -J' tried the solution that others used by running the command line as administrator and in typing "sfc/scannow". However, this does not work, and this error in the following line: "could not Windows Resource Protection start the repair service".

    -I can't do a system restore because I had already done the restore points, which was a bad idea on my part. However, system restore services have problems with the shadow copy of Volume and not more time to work in any case.

    * At the same time where this problem occurred, when looking for the solution to this problem, I found that a number of other things had stopped working on this laptop. I will not list all of them because it's a fairly large list, but this include services such as the Windows Installer Service, Windows Update services, and Windows store. I could do separate posts for all these but I feel like the root of these problems is related to this key error message.

    * If this can help, at his request, I could type in a list of all service issues and error messages associated with them. In general, they can be irrelevant to the topic of this post.

    In this scenario, I would suggest trying the following methods and check if it works for you.

    Method 1:

    Start safe mode and check if the same problem persists. If the issue is not still in Mode without failure, then place the computer in a clean boot state and check which program third party/app is causing this problem.

    Step 1: Safe boot mode.

    See the following article from Microsoft Help to start safe mode.

    Step 2: put the computer in a clean boot state in order to determine what third party/PPP program is causing this problem.

    Note: After the boot minimum troubleshooting step, see the "How to reset the computer to start as usual after a clean boot troubleshooting" section in the link provided to return the computer to a Normal startup mode.

    Method 2:

    Create a new user account and check if it helps. This is to check if the problem is caused due to any user profile related issues or not.

    See the following article from Microsoft Help to create a new user account.
