    I'm running Windows 98 and for some reason I get an error reading: Error Starting Program A required .DLL file, GUTL.DLL, was not found.

    What does this even mean?

    When do you get that error message? During the startup or when you start a particular application?

    Np.

    Well, did you uninstall/install any programs recently?

    Try this -

    Start->Run->msconfig [enter]

    Click on the Startup tab, look for the entry related to gutl.dll, uncheck the box next to it, click on Apply, then Ok. Restart the PC and see if everything works fine.

    I also suggest you to run an antivirus scan at http://housecall.antivirus.com/

    Oh dont be,,,,that is associated with something thats very difficult to find any information about,,,have you installed or uninstalled anything lately?

    A way we might find an awnser is looking at a scanlog,,,,could you click the link below an read it well,,,,,then download, install then run it. Use your mouse to copy all the text,,,,then paste it here in a post so we can look at it. If you have any questions all you have to do is ask.

    I'm running XP and I got the same error. "This application has failed to start because GULT.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I downloaded the new drivers for my video card. And I'm still getting this message. What do I need to do?

    Do you use AT&T as your service connection by any chance?

    Or maybe Comcast?

    Yes, I use AT&T. I got a new version and tried to load it and that is when I got this message. I called AT&T and they are the one that told me to update my video drivers. I did and that did not help. I'm still getting the error.

    Note: Ensure your AT&T WorldNet(R) Service Setup CD-ROM is in the computer before proceeding.

    To resolve this error:

    Re-install the AT&T WorldNet Connection Services Manager software.
    When prompted, restore your existing AT&T WorldNet account information by choosing the Restore my current account settings option.
