Have you ever got this error message “VPShellRes.dll could not be found” ? One day I got that message on my desktop and get stressed cause every right clicking any file, the message always appear. So, if you have ever got that error message I can feel what you feel, it sucks!😀

vpshellres.dll could not be found

My question: “Are you guys using Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) as your virus protection on your PC?” If yes, well the problem starts after you uninstalling that antivirus program. Yes it’s Symantec’s problem.

What’s the problem? It might you didn’t realize but yes as stated before, after uninstalling Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 11.0, the problem begun -> right clicking any file generates “VPShellRes.dll could not be found”

So, what’s the solution? By fixing Windows Registry.Yes, it may prevent the operating system from functioning properly if its use or values are incorrect. But before you make any changes or deleteing one or some values from the Windows Registry please backup it and make sure in doing this by person/s who experienced in the use of the registry editor application.

regedit windows registry

regedit

Ok let me explain how to opening the Registry Editor, it’s very very simple.

  1. Start -> Run -> type “Regedit” and then click OK
  2. Or let’s make it simple by pressing keyboard shortcut -> Windows button + R, then type Regedit, then press Enter
