Causes of Error with shell32.dll
The LocalizedResourceName error appears in some cases, for example, when the “Desktop.ini” file is in folders by the following links on your computer:
- system disk: \ Document and Settings \ All Users \ Start Menu;
- system disk: \ Document and Settings \ All Users \ Start Menu \ Programs;
- system disk: \ Document and Settings \ All Users \ Start Menu \ Programs \ Start Up.
And also if there is a line with an error in the “Desktop.ini” file itself, then the error in Windows will be repeated.
Shell32.dll file itself is a type of dynamic library file. The .dll files provide uninterrupted access to various functions. Print.dll - provides printing in Windows after one of the programs accesses it. After referring to this file, it is loaded into the computer’s RAM and provides the functions assigned to it for all programs, for example, the same print through Word and the browser.
How to fix a boot error
In order to fix the LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%system32shell32.dll error, Microsoft support service has created a special utility that automatically solves this problem on your computer. To do this, you need to visit this page and click on the blue “Download” button. To do this, scroll down the main window a little.
This error can be solved manually in several ways.
- Launch the desktop explorer by pressing WIN + E.

- Open the "Advanced Options" section and uncheck the "Hide extensions ..." options. Next, “Hide protected system ...” (if any) and confirm your actions by pressing the “OK” button.
- Next, you need to delete all existing Desktop.ini files if they contain lines with the text of our error. To do this, follow the following path through the system drive: C: \ Documents and Settings \ All Users \ Start Menu, then open the \ Programs \ and \ Programs \ Startup folder in the same path. If it is not convenient for you to manually search for these partitions, you can find them using Windows Search. In the example, the drive "C" is indicated as a system drive, as it is more often. System - means the drive that is running the operating system.
