    Cannot open dev mgr and a few others

    I am trying to do this: But I get the message "driver could not be loaed. May be missing. On all 3 dll's?
    corrupted. These files include the following:
    • Msxml.dll
    • Msxml2.dll
    • Msxml3.dll

    To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
    2. At the command prompt, type cd %windir%\system32, and then press ENTER.

      Note The %Windir% folder is the folder where you installed Microsoft Windows.
    3. Type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command. Regsvr32 Msxml.dll
      Regsvr32 Msxml2.dll
      Regsvr32 Msxml3.dll
    4. Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.
    5. Restart the computer.

    Right afer I press enter to register the 1st dll. Then it happens with the next 2. I removed bit defender which helped greatly with other things. But I still cannot open dev mgr.
    I haven't tried the com prompt again but I will now

    This is the error message complete. The title of the dialog box is Regsvr32:
    [Window Title]
    The module "Msxml.dll" failed to load.
    Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
    The specified module could not be found.

    Try running this from an Elevated Command Prompt.

    1. Click Start, type cmd, right click on cmd.exe at the top and select Run as Administrator.
    Continue with steps 2 - 5.

    Try running SFC, see if that helps.

    Click Start, type command. Right click on Command Prompt at the top and select Run as Administrator.
    Type sfc /scannow and press Enter
    Let it run to completion.

    Reboot and see if the problem is fixed.
