Sometimes, when you try to run a program on Windows 7, an error message appears that a dll file is not found (for example unidrv.dll is missing, please reinstall the program) and the program does not run.
Error messages can be different (it depends on what language the program was written) for example “Component MSCOMCTL.OCX not correctly registered: file is missing or invalid” or “This application has failed to start because msvcr100.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem”, or “Runtime dll/ocx file error”. Also, the program compatibility assistant may appear saying that this program requires a missing component of Windows.Read more
Sysmenu.dll is closely related with adware and malware programs. It can be a part of some browser toolbar or add-on. Most of the times anti-virus identifies this file as a threat and removes it. However, after removal of sysmenu.dll the error message appears, because the toolbar or an add-on starts up and requires that .dll library and can’t find it. You might also check the antivirus quarantine for that file, but do not restore it, you don’t need an adware on your computer do you? So, if you are getting an error message on every pc startup saying that there was a problem starting C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\System\SysMenu.dll the specified module could not be found, to fix this problem simply follow the guide below. It works for Windows 7, 8, 10 64 / 32 bits.Read more
