Steps to Fix the URLMON DLL Error

URLMon.dll is a file used by Windows to help embed a series of objects into various software applications on your system. It's designed to work on the "OLE" (Object Linking & Embedding Library) of Windows to help the likes of Microsoft Word, etc, to integrate the likes of hyperlinks and "Word Art" into your documents. Although urlmon.dll is a highly important part of every Windows system, it's continually causing a large number of errors on your PC, and needs to be fixed in the most effective and reliable way to ensure your computer is able to run as smoothly as possible again.


The urlmon.dll error normally appears due to the file being corrupted, damaged or misplaced. The error you receive from this file is as follows:
  •     “STOP: c0000221 {Bad Image Checksum}
    The image urlmon.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the  computed checksum”
  •     Iexplore caused an invalid page fault in module Urlmon.dll.

The error above, and the one that will likely be showing on your system, basically mean that your computer cannot read the various features / settings that it requires from this file; either because it's corrupted or damaged. The way to fix this error is to first replace the file on your PC with a "fresh" one, and then fix other menial problems which can also cause it to show.

The way to fix this error is to first download a fresh copy of the urlmon.dll file from the Internet, and then place it into the "C:/Windows/System32" folder, replacing the current file that's on your system. This will ensure your computer can read the file, allowing it to run much smoother and more effectively again as a result. If you do that and find that it does not help resolve the error, then you should look to perform a "system restore" to roll back your PC to a time before the error occurred.

After that, it's then recommended that you clean out the "registry" of your PC with a registry cleaner. This is an important step,as the registry of your PC is one of the most important elements of Windows, which is constantly causing problem & errors. The registry is a database which stores all the settings that your PC requires to run - and is also where a large list of your system's DLL files are kept (it's called the "Shared DLL list"). Each time your PC needs to use a dll file, such as urlmon.dll, it checks this list to see where it is. Unfortunately, this list is continually being damaged, resulting in your PC being unable to read the files it requires to run, causing the errors. Using a registry cleaner will resolve urlmon.dll error.
