To put an end to the frustrating error messages that plague you, the issues causing the problem need to be resolved.
How to fix these errors
The way to fix VMNetBridge.dll errors on your PC is to make sure that both the virtual PC program and the dll file are working properly. You must first reinstall the VMWare program to provide fresh copies of the various program files that it uses. You must first remove the program by clicking Start > Run and then type «appwiz.cpl» and press the ENTER key. Select the VMWare program from the list and click the «Remove» or «Uninstall» button. When the uninstall is complete, you should restart your PC, and when you are back in Windows, insert the installer CD into your CD drive or locate the installer files from your hard drive and run a fresh install.
The registry is a large and very complicated central database that Windows accesses almost constantly to retrieve settings for files and programs. Although essential, the registry keeps finding errors and is known to be a huge source of vmnetbridge.dll errors on your PC, not to mention many other server errors, which will slow down your PC and ultimately render it useless. You need to repair damaged registry keys to keep your computer at its optimal level. While it is possible to manually fix registry keys, this is not recommended unless you are experienced with this type of work, as it can be dangerous to your system if you make a mistake. It is recommended that you use a program called «Frontline Registry Cleaner» to fix the virus on your PC.
