I recently tried to run a program that told me that the qtcore4.dll was missing, and that I must reinstall it in order to run the program. Firstly, I have no idea where to find it and reinstall from. Secondly, when I tried to search, I found this thing called DLL Fixer, which "fixes" the broken dll files...supposedly. Basically, I need to know if this program is safe for me to use or is it a virus/malware.

Anyone who can please help I would really appreciate it. I just need instructions on how to reinstall that file and to know if that other program is safe.

Thank you

(The program can be found at http://www.dll-files.com/dllin.....ml?qtcore4 - it instructs you to download the program to detect .dll file problems and fix them)

I would not touch it with a 10 foot pole. There are a gezillion .dlls and only the program it came with has the right one. What is the problem reinstalling the program.

You could also try a restore point. That would restore the winsxs folder (that's where the .dlls live). Best, of course, would be if you had a prior image.

I don't know where to get the program to reinstall it. I was hoping someone would know.

Would a restore point reinstall the program? I'm not sure what a prior image is. Sorry. :/

Yes, system restore will include installed programs. You never said what program you cannot find.

The program is I guess the qtcore4.dll i'm not really sure otherwise.

That is what the computer keeps telling me... it says "the program can't start because QtCore4.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

qtcore4.dll is a dynamic link library of some program - but it is not a program by itself. The program that brought it is most likely 'WhatPulse2". http://www.whatpulse.org/
