Windows resource protection could not start the repair service – How to Fix

Hi, I have one computer running windows 7, I can’t open the App store icon on the desktop, and I failed to remove the Office 2013 in Control Panel. It suggested something wrong with the system. Then I run sfc /scannow, I got “windows resource protection could not start the repair service”. The Windows Modules Installer service is started. Please tell me what to do? How to fix this problem?


Why do you have “windows resource protection could not start the repair service” error? Why sfc /scannow commend doesn’t work?

As we know, once our computer system loss some important components and result in fails to log in the system or can’t open some app, we can use the sfc /scannow commend to repair. The main reason of the error is that Trusted Installer or the Windows Module Installerservice is not enabled. If this service is not running on your computer then you have to fix Windows resource protection could not start the repair service by enabling this service in order to use System file checker. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash. And the sfc /scannow option is one of several specific switches available in the sfc /command, the Command Prompt command used to run System File Checker. In Windows 10/8/7/Vista, the System File Checker is integrated with Windows Resource Protection, which protects registry keys and folders as well as critical system files. If any changes are detected to a protected system file, the modified file is restored from a cached copy located in the Windows folder itself. So if at any point of time if you find that you have hacked some system files or maybe applied some tweaks or replaced system files, maybe while customizing your Windows, and you now find that your Windows is not working properly, you may want to consider running this utility first, before trying a System Restore. To do so, you will have to first open an elevated command prompt window. Read the rest of this post »

What Can I do if iPad runs Slow?

Is your iPad running slow now? Even though iOS is an outstanding operating system that almost not requires maintenance, it still gets full and slows down over time. When iPad gets slow, you will find it takes a long time to load up an app and open webpages. Or iPad just gets stuck there and frozen, and you even can’t power it down properly. Slow performance is a common problem with old iPad an iPad 1, 2 or 3, or the iPad mini 1, but newest version iPad still can become full and sluggish. There are many various reasons why an iPad may begin running slow, including an app running in the background or simply a slow Internet connection. So here we will offer some guides on how to speed up your slow iPad.

Shut down apps running in the background

The first thing you should do if your iPad becomes slow is to close down completely apps running in the background. Usually some apps can be automatically closed down, but some will not but still is running there. To close down apps running in the background, you can double click the Home Button to bring up the multitasking screen, and then hold your finger down on the window, and without lifting your finger from the screen, swipe toward the top of the display. Remember: you touch the app window, not the app icon. Next you can choose four or five app windows to see if that helps.

Clear out or remove apps that you no longer user

Generally, apps will take up storage space, and if you can remove some apps that you don’t use no longer to free up space, it will make easier for iOS to operate. Please kindly note that if you want to delete apps from your device totally, you don’t just close down them by double-tapping Home button to open the multitasking bar, and then swiping up on the app you want to close. That won’t help to entirely delete unwanted apps. If you want to delete many apps, you can try this way: Tap Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage. Now tap Manage Storage (under Storage, not iCloud) and look for items that are taking up lots of space.

How to Fix Dnsapi.dll Not Found Error on PC

I have recently started getting error messages that basically say dnsapi.dll is missing or corrupted please try reinstalling this program. I have looked up this problem and have found a lot of reports on this error most likely being caused by a glitch on windows defender, but the problem is I have cleared my quarantine and deleted it thinking it was the cause of the error. I have seen replies from Microsoft engineers but they have all been no help at all. What can I do to resolve this?

What is Dnsapi.dll? Why do I get this Error?


Dnsapi.dll is a Windows DLL file. DLL is the abbreviation for Dynamic Link Library. DLL files are needed by programs or web browser extensions, because they contain program code, data, and resources. It is not essential for the Windows OS and causes relatively few problems. Dnsapi.dll is located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder. This type of DLL file is similar to EXE (“executable”) files, which allow multiple software programs to share the same functionality (eg. printing). DLL files exist outside of the software application itself. Although this provides many benefits for software developers, this separation also provides an opportunity for problems to occur. DLL file can be injected to all running processes and can change or manipulate their behavior. The program is not visible. Dnsapi.dll is a trustworthy file from Microsoft. The service has no detailed description. The file is not a Windows core file.
Quite simply, if Windows cannot properly load your dnsapi.dll file, you will encounter an error message.

There is several reasons lead to Dnsapi.dll Not Found Error:

How to Fix Flash Crashes in Chrome, Firefox and IE

I upgraded to Windows 10 a few days ago and I have the problem that Adobe Flash/Shockwave is crashing immediately in all browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge) when I open a page where flash is needed., even here on the adobe site — the app that shows what version of flash you are running (I’ve downloaded and reinstalled the latest version now several times after uninstalling) — lists the version for about 10 seconds and then crashes. I am in total browser hell. Can you help me fix this problem please?

Why Flash Crashes in all of my browsers? How to fix?

Adobe now uses shockwave flash and it still crashes no matter which browser you are using or even using only one tab page or disable all plug-in (except flash plug-in to watch video). Even you have confirmed only have one flash or even a new pc, you cannot escape the crash. Some software on your computer can conflict with browsers and cause it to crash. This includes malware and network-related software that interferes with browsers.

What is Shockwave Player?

Shockwave Player is a multimedia platform for building interactive multimedia applications and video games. Developers originate content using Adobe Director and publish it on the Internet. Such content can be viewed in a web browser on any computer with the Shockwave Player plug-in installed. Macro mind originated the technology; Macromedia developed it further, releasing Shockwave Player in 1995. Adobe Systems acquired Shockwave in 2005. Shockwave supports raster graphics, basic vector graphics, 3D graphics, audio, and an embedded scripting language called Lingo. Read the rest of this post »
