Hi I have just had a popup that tells me a program failed to start up and advises I reload the program from the C.D. but all it tells me is that it was Comm API.DLL could someone tell me where to start to find out what this is The web was no ver instructive,

Im not totally sure if this is a windows dll,however we can find out by running sfc.

Click Start (windows orb) / All Programs / Accessories / Right click Command Prompt and run as administrator (agree to any UAC prompts).

Now type


And enter,note the space between c and /

If windows is preinstalled,sfc should repair any windows dll's,however you may need the windows disc if not preinstalled.

Let sfc run and take its course.If this does not fix your issue come back to us.
