How to Fix Btballoon.dll Errors

Follow these steps in the order they're given below to try the simpler solutions first.

Do not download btballoon.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file like that is a bad idea. If you need a copy of this file, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.

  1. Restore btballoon.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" btballoon.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.

    If you suspect this, but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover the file with a free file recovery program.

    Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of these steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the error.

  2. Reinstall the program that uses the btballoon.dll file. If the DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.

    This file is associated with Bluetooth software, so the error is most likely seen when using a Bluetooth device or when opening a related application. WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software is one example of a program that uses btballoon.dll.

    Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the btballoon.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.

  3. Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to btballoon.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file btballoon.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.

    The btballoon.dll file may or may not be related to video cards, which is why it's important to pay very close attention to the context of the error. Since this DLL file is probably associated with Bluetooth, target your Bluetooth devices specifically to see if updating those drivers correct the error.

  4. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some btballoon.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the btballoon.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.

  5. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, System Restore could solve the problem.

  6. Roll back a driver to a previously installed version if btballoon.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.

  7. Install any available Windows updates. Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The btballoon.dll file probably isn't included in one of those updates but it might rely on one, in which case updating Windows could put one or more DLL files on your computer that btballoon.dll needs.

  8. Test your memory and then test your hard drive. We've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause btballoon.dll errors as they fail.

    If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.

  9. Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual btballoon.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.

  10. Use a free registry cleaner to repair btballoon.dll related issues in the registry. A registry cleaner may be able to help by removing invalid btballoon.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.

    We rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners—see our Registry Cleaners FAQ to see why. We've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.

  11. Perform a clean installation of Windows. This will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the btballoon.dll error, this should be your next course of action.

    All the information on your hard drive will be erased during this step. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the btballoon.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.

  12. Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any btballoon.dll errors persist. After a clean installation of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
