Step Two – Clean Out The Registry
One of the biggest causes of the tai2.dll errors is the registry database of Windows. The “registry” is a central database which stores all the settings, information and options for your computer, and is where Windows keeps many vital settings that it requires to run. It’s often the case that a lot of registry settings become damaged and corrupted, leading your PC to take longer to run, making it run slower and with a lot of errors. To fix this problem, you should use a ‘registry cleaner’ to scan through your PC and fix any of the damaged or corrupt settings that are inside it. You can see our recommended registry cleaner below:
Step Three – Check Your Firewall Settings
Another big cause of the tai2.dll error is because your firewall blocked the connection to it. To make sure this is not a problem, you should open your Firewall and then make sure that it is not blocking AOL or the TopSpeed program. A good way to test if this is the problem is to temporarily disable the firewall on your system, and then try doing what you want to. If the tai2.dll error does not show, then the chances are that it’s being blocked by your firewall. Because there are so many firewalls available, it will be unpractical to list exactly how to create “exceptions” with your application, but it should be easy to discover how from the Manufacturer’s website.
