DLLs or Dynamic Link Libraries were introduced with the Microsoft Windows 95 operating system to ensure effective usage of system resources and disk space. These files comprise program executables that can be loaded and unloaded when required. There are hundreds of DLL files on your computer. Some of these are shipped with your Windows operating system and some are registered later when you install new software and device drivers.

With such a large amount of DLL files on a single computer, a very small issue can give rise to several DLL errors and put your PC in DLL hell. Let us have a look at some of the common causes of DLL errors and the steps you can take to resolve them.

Akismet Trackback Spam Ban Lifted!

As I explained in yesterday’s post, Akismet banned me from posting comments on WordPress blogs because of my use of a trackback spam tool I tested out a few months ago.

After some searching, I found one other blogger who suggested simply contacting Akismet if you feel you were wrongly blacklisted.

While I definitely deserved some punishment for trying to exploit the trackback system, I had been “clean” form spam-like activities for a long time and had been working diligently for months to restore my blog’s honor in the eyes of Akismet.

Could a simple email be the answer I had been looking for?

In fact, it was. I used the contact form on the Akismet website to submit a “I have a support or feature request” service ticket. I was completely honest in my email where I explained what happend and asked for the penalty to be lifted.
