...a fix for the FLTLIB.dll

Philippines

To start,I am more into a computer user than computer technicians,so bear with me. When I use my computer disk defragment, a pop-up windows always shows up that says I have lost this particular dll. AS much as I want to remedy the situation, I can't because I have no idea how it lost or corrupted it in the first place. I tried searching online for an alternative. However, I read an article that fixing the problem with a software might lead to other problems, which I don't want to have. Now,the only the only way I could defragment (once a week) is by using a third-party software. Is there i could get this dll without causing major problems?

The only one that I can suggest you is for you to download the fltlib.dll from the Internet and place it to your System32 folder. Try replacing your old fltlib.dll.

In my case, I would repair the operating system using the original installation OS disk. Turn off the computer, restart, go to setup by pressing Del or F2, choose CD/DVD Drive as first boot device priority, insert OS disk, Exit Setup saving changes, press Esc and follow the next steps as installing a new OS except pressing "R" instead of reformatting the disk on the Installation menu. This install a new OS without sacrificing the settings and current documents of the user.

That's actually a lot to do rog and consumes a lot of time. I'd rather try to do the simpler steps first before doing a complicated one. The Repair option present in OS disks also do the same (replacing the damaged files into new ones and inserting missing files). Sometimes, not all cases of like this can be solved by merely repairing using the OS disk. I know because I've already experienced this before for several times already.

Thanks for all your responses. I think I will try to download the .dll. As much as I want to follow rog's advice, I don't have the installation disc for my OS since I downloaded it online. I doubt that the link that I used will still be active. Again silver, thanks for the insight. I'll try to find a suitable download and hopefully it will work from there.
