Hello , lately a problem with my .dll files occured . With startup for any games or programs a popup window with error of .dll files missing shows . I keep replacing the dll´s and reinstalling the Microsoft c++ drivers , but the error still pops up. I was wandering if my HDD can be defective of some sort.

It can but it's most likely that your antivirus is killing them.

Thats the thing , the files are still in folder /System32 but the popup error says that they are missing , Also yesterday when i was turning off my PC it took about 15 minutes , i then switched the back power button off , and also this morning when i turned ON the pc this showed up , so it must be the HDD.

If you click on one of them you should be able to choose "Allow" but it will be allowed only temporally until WD makes another scan. when it will take action again. You are doing it at own risk, no telling how malicious/dangerous they may be.
Thats fine and all but what should i do . I removed them and still nothing has changed.
