One day, I asked my friend to reinstall the OS on my laptop and load a few programs, that I needed. After reinstallation everything was fine, but when loading one of the programs we had an error. All the day we were looking for a solution of this problem. And finally, at one of the sites we found as it possible to Fix your Windows errors for free https://fix4dll.com/. It was our salvation. Now I'm more responsible of this process.
