We Solve Dec2amg.dll Errors
The dec2amg.dll file is described as a file decomposer component of the Norton Security Center. There are many file decomposers associated with Norton one for each of the types of compressed files that it is going to disassemble or decompose.
The dec2amg.dll file is the decomposer library for AMG Actor System Image files (file extension .amg). The dec2amg.dll module is a component called by the Symantec Anti Virus Decomposer Engine, which carries out the scanning of compressed / archived files for malicious content.
Symantec Anti Virus is an anti virus scan engine employed in numerous anti virus products from Symantec, which includes Norton Anti Virus, Mail Security, Web Security, and many others. Symantec Anti Virus aids standard file scanning and real-time file scanning, even on compressed / archived files.
The dec2amg.dll module works as a file decomposer meaning it breaks down the archived content of an AMG Actor System Image file to a format recognizable by the Anti Virus software and calls the scanner to look into the broken down contents for any changes or modifications from the original.
On older versions of Symantec Anti Virus software like Norton Anti Virus 2002, an error may sometimes occur when the dec2amg.dll module is called due to the fact that the AMG compressed file may possibly be protected by a password or corrupted, which presents a problem to the decomposer when scanning compressed files.
The solution was that you must turn off the scanning within compressed files on the Anti Virus software on Auto Protect mode, and it would not be a security risk anyway since the Anti Virus will still scan again after the compressed files are opened. The problem was somehow fixed on newer versions of the dec2amg.dll module.

What is a DLL?
Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.
DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.
When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.
Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
