I downloaded a set of icon today, and the file is zipped, when I tried to open it, my laptop does not support .dll files, I tried the selection to search the web to find an appropriate program, then it reccomended me to use FileCure, so I downloaded FileCure, when I tried to use it, it just scans my file and that’s it, I still can’t open it. Do you know any way to open a dll file instead of using this FileCure rubbish?
Get rid of FileCure – it doesn’t have a good reputation and isn’t useful to you in this situation.
XP computers and later can open ordinary zipped files. For earlier versions of Windows and less common types of compressed files, I recommend UltimateZip or 7Zip:
I’m assuming you are finding the dll file(s) inside the zip file. Dll files are usually put in the appropriate place on your computer, according to whatever instructions came with it, and then you use the “Change Icon…” function of Windows to change the icon for your file. Navigate to the dll file and any icons available will be shown and can be chosen. If you don’t know where to put it, try putting it in your System32 folder but remember where it came from. Malware puts dlls into the System32 folder so an unknown dll file is in danger of being deleted by antimalware programs.
