Starting yesterday, when my computer boots up I get an error message stating "The ASWENGIN.DLL file is linked to missing export ASWCMNOS.DLL:dep_fsSetFileAttributes", but the computer seems to work normally. What can I do to eliminate/fix this?
Hi, let's check on that dll file. It seems to be associated with AVAST antivirus program. I'll assume this is the antivirus you use. That would explain everything else seemingly running normally. Actually, both dll files you mention are components of Avast. Go to Avast's site by clicking here or here for tech support. You may need an update or replacement of the dll file that's missing or corrupt. What OS are you running? Hope this helps.
Hey, I had also emailed the Avast! techies, and got the response/suggestion to go into Control Panel, Add/Delete programs, Highlight Avast! and click "Repair", and upon reboot everything would be working normally. I tried it and it worked! I never even knew there was a "Repair" option in Add/Delete Programs.
