What you should know about mfc71enu.dll MFC Language Specific Resources

mfc71enu.dll is not part of Windows, but it is important nonetheless. Mfc71enu.dll is found in the C:\Windows\System32 directory or sometimes in a subdirectory of "C:\Program Files". Frequently occurring are file sizes such as 57,344 bytes (83% of all these files) or, as the case may be, 62,872 bytes.
This so-called dynamic link library (DLL) contains all the functions that have been transferred to a separate file. These transferred functions are available not only to this particular program, but can also be used by other applications. There is no concrete documentation available for this service. This process does not have a visible window, and does not appear on the taskbar. Mfc71enu.dll also can also affect other applications by changing their properties. Such manipulation can cause an application to do things other than what it is intended to do. The file is no part of Microsoft Windows. You can find the file or its related application in Control Panel under Programs. You can then rerun the setup or uninstall the program. mfc71enu.dll appears to be a file that was compressed by an EXE-Packer. This technique is often used by trojans to keep the file size small and also hamper debugging efforts. However, this in itself is not sufficient reason to presume malicious intent, since even well-intentioned, professional software producers take advantage of compressed files. For this reason, 52% of all experts consider this file to be a possible threat. The probability that it can cause harm is high.

If you see this file on your hard drive or in Windows Task Manager, please make sure that it is not a malicious variant. It's a fact that many trojans try to cloak their true identity by calling themselves mfc71enu.dll. With the above information or by using tools like Security Task Manager you can determine if, in your case, the file is an undesirable variant.

How to tell if mfc71enu.dll (MFC Language Specific Resources) was uninstalled cleanly

After uninstalling, restart your computer. Then start Windows Explorer and see if there is still a folder with the name of the software under C:\Program Files.

To do this, start "Regedit", then look under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" > "Software" for MFC Language Specific Resources or the name of the producer. Always keep in mind that only a computer professional should ever directly delete entries in the Windows Registry.
