Iertutil.dll is a file used by Internet Explorer to help load up various important settings & options that your computer is going to use to help it run. Despite the file being extremely important, it’s continually going to be causing a large number of issues on your system, generally preventing your computer from being able to read the files & settings required to run various programs. If you’re seeing errors caused by Iertutil.dll, you need to be able to repair any of the problems & issues which are preventing it from correctly loading up.
The errors which this file typically causes include:
- “iertutil Not Found”
- “This application failed to start because iertutil was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.”
The problem that are causing the issues you’re seeing is a basic problem caused by the way your PC will be unable to correctly read the iertutil file. Many DLL errors are caused by the various files on your system being corrupted, misplaced or outdated; and this problem is no different. Most people will actually see this error when they have updated Internet Explorer – and is a result of your PC being unable to update the file.
The way to fix this error is to first ensure that the iertutil file is placed into the “System32” folder of your PC. This can be done by first searching through your PC for the file (click “Start > Search”) and then find the iertutil.dll file. After the file has been located, you then need to copy it and paste it into C:WindowsSystem32, which will allow your computer to correctly read the settings it needs to run. After that, you may wish to also manually replace the iertutil.dll file with one from the Internet, ensuring that the file is up to date and able to run correctly.
It’s also recommended that you use a registry cleaner application to fix any of the settings which could be causing a problem with the file. The registry is a big cause of DLL File errors for Windows computers, because it’s where a large list of these files is kept for your PC. Every time you use any piece of software for your computer, it’s continually going to be loading a large number of files from the registry database to help it run… but although this normally works, it’s likely that this database will have some sort of problem / issue that’s preventing it from correctly opening up the iertutil.dll file. This is likely contributing to the iertutil.dll errors on your system, and can be fixed by using a registry cleaner tool from the Internet.
