What Causes The Dlcctime.dll Error?
This error is caused by a number of contributing factors, but none more so than a conflict between printer drivers. Although this problem does not affect your computer’s performance, functions or features in any way, it’s best to get it resolved quickly.
How To Fix The Dlcctime.dll Error
Step 1 – Uninstall & Reinstall Dell Printer Driver
The first step you should take is to uninstall and then reinstall the Dell Printer Driver for your PC. The Dell Printer Driver is a program that runs on your computer and allows Windows to read the files it needs to run. Unfortunately, it’s often the case that this driver either conflicts with another driver or becomes corrupted and unable to run. This is what causes the DLCCTIME.dll error in most computers and in order to fix it, you should reinstall the Dell Printer Driver for your PC. You can read about how to reinstall Dell Printer Drivers from the Dell website.
Step 2 – Remove WOW6432Node From The Registry
The next step is to remove the registry setting which often causes the conflict between the various drivers on your PC. This is the “WOW6432Node” registry file, which many computers have to help them read various printer setting and allow you to print out on your system. You should remove this to prevent any further damage being caused to your system… here’s how:
- Browse to C:\Windows\ on your PC
- Locate & Double-Click on “Regedit.exe“
- On the left-hand pane, locate “HKEY LOCAL MACHINE“
- Click on the “SOFTWARE” folder
- Find the “wow6432node” registry key
- Highlight the key & press “Delete” to delete it
Highly Recommended – Scan The Registry
In addition to this step, you should also look to perform a scan of the “registry” of your system to make sure that there are no problems inside this part of your PC causing the error. The registry is a central database which stores information and files which keeps your computer running as smoothly and effectively as possible. Unfortunately, the registry is constantly becoming damaged which leads Windows to show errors where it cannot read the files or programs that it needs to. To fix this, you should use a ‘registry cleaner’ to scan through your system and fix any of the errors which could be causing the Dlcctime.dll driver conflict.
