I love the Process Manager in Glary Utilties, but for some reason, I can no longer access it. I get the following error: "This application has failed to start because MFC42u.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem." Reinstalling did NOT fix the problem, and the only discussion on Glary Utilities forum has them denying the problem exists. I ran Hijack this, and the report is attached. I appreciate your help.

this dll is a visual c++ runtime.

Taken from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967060
1) uninstall Microsoft Visual C++
2)Download and then install the latest Visual C++ runtime. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft...ads/Search.aspx (http://www.microsoft...ads/Search.aspx)
2. In the search box next to All Downloads, type Microsoft Visual C++ package, and then click Go.
3. In the search results, click the Visual C++ Redistributable Package for your operating system.
Note The x86 version of the package is for 32-bit version of Windows. The X64 version of the package is for 64-bit version of Windows.
4. On the page that opens, click Download, and then save the file to your Desktop.
5. When the download is complete, double-click the executable file.
6. Follow the directions that are displayed. When you are prompted, restart the computer.

I appreciate your help, but this did not work. I still get the same error, even after rebooting my computer. Thank you, though.

ok, lets try re registering the dll file.

open command prompt (start, programs, accessories, command prompt)

type regsrv32 /u MFC42u.dll
hit enter to run command.

next locate MFC42u.dll on your drive. Should be in c:\windows\system32.
use the path where located in the next command.

In command prompt, type: regsrv32 c:\windows\system32\MFC42u.dll
hit enter to execute command.

Let me know the results.

I have done several of the regsrv things before as suggested from my web search. Usually it says it is successful. This time, when I tried your suggestion, it said regsrv32 is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. So I couldn't go past step 1. Leave it to me to be difficult, lol. I very much appreciate your help.

Re-tried this. The processes were successful, but it did not fix the problem. Thank you though!
