if since posting your thread you have rebooted and you still have the error,suggest you do the following.

1/ go to start ,search type in vct3216.dll which should be in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder and see if it comes up.

IF not there,

2/do a sfc /scannow with your windows disk/recovery disk in drive and see if it will be extracted.REBOOT,see if error message appears.

2/You could do a systems restore back to before the error message appeared.

The VCT3216.DLL is a Application Extension in the
C:\WINDOWS\system32 opens as Unknown application
Voxware Compression Toolkit and if not on your system ,or cannot be extracted ,could be sent as a attachment to you via email so you can copy it into your C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder.
