    Hello Keturno, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    No worries. If you like, you can download the .reg file for the listed .dll option in the tutorial below to restore the default associations of the .dll file type.

    Hope this helps,

    if that doesn't work , try this...

    run regedit

    Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT in the registry.
    Search ".DLL" under this key.
    Click on this key and delete the (Default) value.
