Howdy Luca

Just to confirm first, have you already looked in your Add / Remove Programs Control Panel applet to see if it's listed in there so you can unstall it the normal way? Also, look in your Program Files folder for a folder resembling it's name and then for an Uninstall program in it's folder. If neither of those exist, we can help ya dig deeper.

Re: Want to delete .dll files .. any ideas how to do that?

Maybe this will help you Luca

  • Find the E-Greetings.exe DLL files you need to delete: Open your Windows Start menu & then click "Run", (Shortcut is the Windows Key + R).
  • Type "cmd" in the Run field, & then click the OK button.
  • For Windows 7, just type "regedit" in the "Search programs and files" box in the Windows start menu.
  • To change your current directory in the Command (cmd) window, type "cd" in the command window, press your "Space" key, & type in the full directory path where the E-Greetings.exe DLL file is located. If you're not sure if the E-Greetings.exe DLL file is located in a particular directory, type "dir" in the command window to display a directory's list of files and folders. To go one directory up, type "cd .." in the command window & press the "Enter" key.
  • Once you've found the E-Greetings.exe DLL file you want to remove, type "regsvr32 /u ExampleDLLName.DLL" (i.e., "regsvr32 /u egreetings.DLL") and press your "Enter" key.

All done! If you ever need to restore any E-Greetings.exe DLL file that you removed, just repeat the steps above, but type "regsvr32 deleted.DLL" instead (i.e., "regsvr32 egreetings.DLL") into the command window, and hit the "Enter" key.

Hope that helps!

Just follow these steps Smile

  • Click the "Start" button in Windows and select "Search" from the Start Menu.
  • Click the "All files and folders" link in the Search window, and type the name of the .dll file you want to delete into the empty field. Click the "Search" button to begin the search.
  • Locate the file in the search results and take note of the file path, which indicates where the file is stored. This is very important, because you will need to know the file path for the last steps, so you may want to write it down. Typically, .dll files will be found in "C:\Windows\System32," but this can vary depending on the specific type of .dll file and the version of Windows you're using.
  • Right-click on the .dll file in the search results, and select "Delete" from the options that pop up. This will move the file to the Recycle Bin.
  • Click the "Start" button in Windows, and select "Run" from the Start Menu. Type "cmd" into the empty field, and click the "Run" button.
  • Type "regsvr32 /u C:\filepath\filename.dll" into the command line, substituting the specific file path and name of the file for "filepath" and "filename," respectively. For example, if you wanted to delete the file "windows.dll" from the file path "C:\Windows\System32," you would type "regsvr32 /u C:\Windows\System32\windows.dll." Press "Enter" after typing this line to unregister the .dll file from your system, completing the process

Deleting certain .dll files may cause system instability and may diminish functionality. Make sure you know what you're doing before deleting or unregistering a .dll file.

Have virus, malware, spyware you want fixed? Computer slow?

First Off if you haven't uninstalled it you should download CCleaner and run it and uninstall it from CCleaner !

but more than likely you already uninstalled it or deleted it So NOW Run CCleaner and after you run normal settings for CCleaner

after that run registry Scanner from CCleaner you will see a bunch of files they ask you to clean up I would selected fix all , If I were you I would save the reg backup CCleaner asks you to do that so its very simple !
Download and install CCleaner, then reboot into Safe Mode and run the program to delete your temp files.

You probably dont have to run in Safe mode but it wouldn't hurt because if you do it will be a better scan.

I tried deleting avgcmla.dll file with the "regsvr32/u avgcmla.dll" and it did not delete. I have Windows 8. Is there another way to remove these types of files?

Hey Linda Smile

Did you get any error message when trying to delete it? My guess is that it might be locked by Windows. You could try forcing it to unlock before trying to delete it.

This (free) program will do that for you: UnLockIT. I use it all the time. After installing it, it will add a menu item when you right-click on a file, and you choose "Unlock", and it'll try to force it to unlock from whatever process has it locked. Do that on your avgcmla.dll. Then go ahead and do the regsvr32 /u on it again. I should point out, that running the regsvr32 /u command on any file doesn't actually delete the file; it just unregisters it from your system (the registry). You'll still have to manually delete the file after.



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
