F Secure Booster - windows error message following automatic update
Have been using F Secure Booster since mid May 2015 without any issues and have found the programme very useful and efficent. However an automatic update undertaken today has rendered the programme unusable as it will not run, instaed I am presented with a Windows error message as follows - 'the programme cannot start because mfc120u.dll is missing from you computer'.
Is there a fix, as I am concerned if I unistall the programme I may not be able to reinstall without repurchasing as my autorisation code was used on the initial installation?
I've had this error myself, although not with Booster. I think it's quite a common Windows error, and this should fix it for you:
If you want to check it out first, Google the error message and you'll find quite a bit on it, mostly pointing to the above.5 Like
This is usually caused by a wrong or corrupted C++ Redistributables installation.
To correct the problem please proceed as follows:
-Start vcredist_2013_x86.exe located under C:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\F-Secure Booster\
-If you get the question "install or repair", please choose repair.
After this step it should work.
