I have lost a DLL-how to get it back?

During a clean-up session that I did on my computer, I have uninstalled a DLL that I now need. One file I cannot locate is regext.dll.  Is there a place on the net where I can find this file and download it?  Thanks in advance for your help.

Use System File Checker to extract dll from cd Norton Utilities. Perhaps another Norton program also has the dll, try it. If you dont have the cd, go to Symantec.com, click on  trial software, download Norton Utilities 4.5 to disk. Use SFC to extract dll directly from zip file. Trash zip file.

Do you know what program uses it.
DO you get a message when you try to use a certain program and it tell you that this dll is missing?

If your using Win98 try SFC (system file checker) make sure the option for deleted files is enabled. If it tell you that this file was deleted and you have an idea what program uses it try inserted the program disk or CD and see it sfc will replace it.

Hope this may help

Norton Registry Editor uses regext.dll, I have looked for this file in the recycle bin...not there.  Nor is it anywhere else on my computer

The address you are to enter is case-sensetive since that specific server runs on UNIX. So make sure that the S in SYSTEM is upper case and the filename and extention are are uppercase.

You can right-click on the address and select 'Copy Shortcut'. Then where you type addresses of the sites you want to see, right-click and select 'Paste'. Hit Enter and it should ask you for a folder to download it to.

Hope it helps

Rdaves,
As AST99 suggests right click the url and paste it in the address bar and press ENTER. It is a valid link and I just tried it again and have the file in a temp folder as we speak. Just copy the whole line exactly as it is posted

Centery provided clues but not answers.  The DLLs I needed were on the software CD which I reloaded and fixed the problem.

Thanks rdaves. Should you loose a dll or sys file again, SFC will extract directly from CD without having to re-install the whole program. Glad you're back on track.
