RUNDLL....ERROR LOADING C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool etc.

by livinat954 / April 5, 2009 2:12 PM PDT

Every time I turn on my computer and the desktop appears I get this error message:

Error loading C:\Windows\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\DLCCtime.dll
The specified module could not be found

When I click on OK, I can still use the computer.

I do not know what caused this window to appear or what I can do to resolve the issue, this has been a problem for many months, any help would be appreciated.
thank you

The 'DLCCtime.dll' File Belongs To The Dell Printer Driver
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / April 6, 2009 4:12 AM PDT

It appears like you may have a Dell printer on your computer and if so, try uninstalling the printer software, then reinstall it. Or maybe you uninstalled the printer software and are now seeing the error?

If the above doesn't help, let us know more about the operating system and exactly what you have installed on the computer.

Hope this helps.

Thank You Grif,
That "was" the problem, I uninstalled the Dell printer and now I no longer get this error message, I was desparate to get help on this even paid for Regcure for two licenses and that didn't help either. Should have waited for Cnet to reply, could have saved some money.
Thank You Very Much, that has been plagueing me for many months, just like Staples slogan "That was Easy".

I have my computer hooked to a HP all in one printer. Does this cause me to use something different then the ideas for a Dell Printer?

Are You Getting The Same Error Message?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / February 27, 2012 8:04 AM PST
In reply to: The Dllctime.dll

Unfortunately, you've told us nothing about your setup.. Operating system, make and model of computer, and whether you previously had a Dell printer installed. If so, try uninstalling the Dell printer software.. It shouldn't affect the HP printer software at all. If it doesn't, then uninstall the HP printer software, then reinstall it again.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
