If Method 3 doesn’t work for you, continue to try Method 4.
Method 4: Perform a clean boot
The Arbiter.dll not found error can be caused by third-party services and programs like some monitoring applications, broadcasting applications, ect. You can perform a clean boot to determine whether a third-party service or program is causing the error.
A “clean boot” starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. After a clean boot, if the Arbiter.dll not found error doesn’t occur, it means a third-party service or program is causing the error. Then you’ll just need to find out what that service\program is.
Here’s how to perform a clean boot in Windows 10:
1) On your keyboard, press Win+R together to invoke the Run box.
2) Type “msconfig” into the Run box and click OK. Then the System Configuration window will open.
3) At the System Configuration window, go to the Services tab, tick Hide all Microsoft services and click Disable all. Then all non-microsoft services will be disabled.
4) Go to the Startup tab, click on Open Task Manager.
5) In Task Manager, for each item that’s enabled at startup (you can tell from the Status column), select the item and then select Disable.
Note: Some anti-virus software may not be disabled in Task Manager. If you have any anti-virus software installed, check if it’s disabled in Task Manager. If not, you’ll need to go to the software’s settings to disable it.
6) Go back to the System Configuration window.
7) Click Apply -> OK to save the changes.
8) Restart your computer. Then your computer will be in a clean boot environment.
9) Check to see if the error occurs in the clean boot environment.
If the error doesn’t occur, a third-party service or program is the cause. Then you can follow below steps to find out the specific service or program causing the error.
1) Open the System Configuration window again.
2) Click the Services tab.
3) Enable several non-Microsoft services at a time (for example, five services as a group).
4) Check to see if the error occurs. If the error occurs, that group contains the services causing the error.
5) Repeat Step 3) and Step 4) until you find a group of services causing the error. Then check the service one by one until you find the service that is causing the error.
If none of the services is the cause, perform the same steps for the Startup programs and find out what startup program is causing the error.
If this method doesn’t work for you, try the next method.
Method 6: Install Halo Infinite from Steam
If none of the above methods fixes the error, the last resort you can try is to install Halo Infinite from Steam.
