Where to download gdi32full.dll
I do not recommend downloading this file from little-known sites, as this most likely will not solve the problem, and the chances of catching a virus are very high today. There is one service that directly downloads system files for windows from Microsoft servers.
If the service does not suit you, you can ask a friend to send you this file.
When you have uploaded a file to the system, you may need to register it in the system. Press Win + R and enter:
regsvr32 / s% windir% \ System32 \ gdi32full.dll
