    Re: Getting an error message 'wsecedit.dll was not found' on startup Windows XP


    Do not download wsecedit.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why
    downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of wsecedit.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.
    Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the wsecedit.dll error.

    1. Restore wsecedit.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" wsecedit.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.

      If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted wsecedit.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover wsecedit.dll with a free file recovery program.

      Recovering a deleted copy of wsecedit.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.

    2. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some wsecedit.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the wsecedit.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.

    3. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the wsecedit.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.

    4. Reinstall the program that uses the wsecedit.dll file. If the wsecedit.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.

      Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the wsecedit.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.

    5. Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to wsecedit.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file wsecedit.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
