  • Whenever I start my computer, I see the message, "C:\Windows1\Kjoralir.dll" is missing.

    Whenever I start my computer, I see the message, "C:\Windows1\Kjoralir.dll" is missing.  This happened for several months, but I just ignored him.  Don't know if it's related, but a user cannot disconnect without pressing the Windows key and the "L" key at the same time.

    Tonight I ran a registry repair program, and it fixed a lot of errors.  But, always, the message came after a reboot.  I don't know what it is, what it does or how to remedy the situation. Can anyone help?

    Thank you!

    You may have damaged even more by running a registry cleaner for Windows. The best registry cleaners are snake oil, and at worst they will damage MS Office and sometimes Windows itself. Details:


    For the problem, Googling for this file appears your post. When you get no hits for a filename on Google, chances are high that it is a malicious program file. Either you have uninstalled the malware program or your antivirus/antispyware program did. In all cases, a reference has been left in the boot file. You can remove the reference by managing your startup.

    Because you had a piece of malware, the chances are too high you had others. It would be a good idea to scan. I recommend to download and install MalwareBytes' anti-malware (MBAM) from . The program is free. (There is a paid version, but you don't need to buy it to remove the malware).

    Manage startup:

    (for XP) Start > run > msconfig [Enter]

    This will open the System Configuration utility. Look under the Startup tab and find the likely culprit. Uncheck the box next to its name, apply and OK out. You don't need to restart immediately, but next time you do, you will get a dialog box saying that you have used the utility. Just check the box that says in effect, "don't mind to this subject again".

    Check the details of the game! For most every game developer publishes the hardware configuration requirements for each game.

    Then compare it with the specifications of your laptop and then you have it ;)

  • In games, I get a window saying: hardware acceleration is turned off and the game is running slowly.

    The continuous solitair game give a window saying "hardware acceleration" is disabled.  In addition, the game runs very slowly.

    If you are still having this problem then I recommend to update your video card driver.  Go to the website for the manufacturer of the video card and usually they will have a driver download section.  Also, if this does not help, then after your system specs and what version of Windows and level of service pack that you are running.

  • I can't get the games to run after the upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8

    I have updated to Windows 8, but can not get Windows 7 games to run on this new program. How can I do this?

    If you are referring to the built-in games that were in Windows 7, as they are not available in Windows 8. Instead, there are a few free games available on the Windows Store product Microsoft applications (in your Start Menu). Card by Microsoft games are called Microsoft Solitaire Collection, there are also Microsoft Mahjong and Minesweeper from Microsoft. You should note that these are different from what you had previously.

    You can also search applications game 3rd party on the Windows store.

    If these aren't the games you were talking about, please provide details of those you want to say.

  • Since the replacement of hard disk, get the message that says SHDOCVW.dll is missing

    Original title: HELP! PLZ!

    I have a computer dell laptop which has xp on it... the hard drive has been replaced, and when I connect it says that the SHDOCVW.dll is not found... Help!

    What I wanted was that the "solution" proposed by Don Patterson would require you to have a genuine Microsoft Windows XP installation CD.  And more, if you had such a CD, when you run the "sfc/scannow" command, even if it replaced the missing file (and I don't think that, because the file is not corrupted and missing), replace it with a very old version.

    If you want to try something, you can download the version of SHDOCVW. DLL of my Windows SkyDrive.  Click here-->! 223 & Thierry = 18B259158254905B! 214 & authkey =! AO-HIAqXqBXVd0w

  • How can I fix a d3dx9_33.dll error message when you install a game?

    When I go to play a game that I recently installed, a system error box appears which says: the program cannot start because d3dx9_33.dll is missing on your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

    What does that mean?

    The error message is a bit misleading. D3dx9_33.dll is not part of the game, it is a part of DirectX 9. To reinstall DirectX 9 should solve the problem.
