Shabby *.dll files

Posted on 2009-05-09

Is there a site on the web that offers directions, applications for the reinstallation or replacement of *.dll files for Windows XP Home Edition--any *.dll file?

P.S.  PLEASE, don't offer--as a solution--anything to do with RegCure by PARETO LOGIC.  It isn't what it's proffessed to be and/or what it's able to do or doesn't do all of that which it's professed to do at the various websites that offer it as a quick-fix, "Cure."  In fact, in my opinion and personal usage history, it does very little for the hard fixes and only works with fixing the easy issues.

For re-installation, you *should* mean back to a 'normalised set' - correct? I.e., a set that sfc wants to have?

What *exactly* are you wanting to do?

Mordido  ... just wondering if you realised that many problems can be fixed simply by re-registering Shell32.dll, which stores information about Windows' interface and is used to open files and Web pages. Re-registering could alleviate the need to replace a DLL file.  See if this helps>

Mordido--The best way to restore missing or corrupt Windows files is to run SFC /Scannow from a command prompt.
Getting files from another source could be risky.

I want to thank you all for some very good sits and suggestions.  Although I've re-set many *.dll files, I can't get my system to work correctly.  At one point my system seemed fixed.  It was running smoothly; then it returned to its "shabby" response.  Still, because the responses are so good, and I've learned alot from you guys, I'm going to split the 500 points between you.  
P.S.  Some suggestion were the same, e.g. SFC, but they pointed at a good source.
