_transcode.dll is not a problem file in itself. However, if you are seeing errors related to this file, then it may be corrupted or pointing itself in the wrong direction.
.dll files run in the Windows registry. This is a place on your computer that gathers operational files such as _transcode.dll and runs them along the most efficient path, ensuring your computer runs at peak efficiency.
Unfortunately, the directory often becomes jumbled through no fault of the user. Files can become outdated, or can “point” to the wrong actions because of adware or viruses. Anti-virus programs do not fix these .dll errors, even when they remove the original problem. A cluttered registry can slow your computer down substantially and potentially make it crash.
The best way to keep your computer running up to speed is by regularly checking and cleaning the registry. ZookaWare PC Cleaner offers a free scan for just this purpose.
