my computer has been acting very funny lately...it has been very slow, doesn't want to start up sometimes and lots of programs stopped working...I was thinking if it could be because of some missing .dll files and then if I installed those it could improve my computer's performance? Is there any way how to find out the missing files???

Thanks for help...

if you click start then run and type sfc /scannow hit enter and windows will check to see if all its files are ok.

the reason your system is running slowly could be down to other issues, download ccleaner http://www.ccleaner.com/ tell it to run, it will remove junk and free up some space, tell it to do a registry scan as well, this will remove invalid entries in the registry. (Back up before cleaning)

Hope this helps

What programs don't work? Are any of them security programs? What scans have you done for malware?
What you describe can be caused by malware. Suggest you install Super Antispyware.
Run it in safe mode.
