Ntuser.dat is considered a type of Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file. Dynamic Link Library files, like ntuser.dat, are essentially a "guide book" that stores information and instructions for executable (EXE) files - like MpSigStub.exe - to follow. These files were created so that multiple programs (eg. YouTube Download & Convert) could share the same ntuser.dat file, saving valuable memory allocation, therefore making your computer run more efficiently.
Unfortunately, what makes DLL files so convenient and efficient, also makes them extremely vulnerable to problems. If something happens to a shared DAT file, either it goes missing or gets corrupted in some way, it can generate a "runtime" error message. Runtime is pretty self-explanatory; it means that these errors are triggered when ntuser.dat is attempted to be loaded either when YouTube Download & Convert is starting up, or in some cases already running. Some of the most common ntuser.dat errors include:
Your ntuser.dat file could be missing due to accidental deletion, uninstalled as a shared file of another program (shared with YouTube Download & Convert), or deleted by a malware infection. Furthermore, ntuser.dat file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading YouTube Download & Convert, system crash while loading ntuser.dat, bad sectors on your storage media (usually your primary hard drive), or quite commonly, a malware infection. Thus, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.

GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve ntuser.dat problems. To avoid data loss, you must be sure that you have backed-up all of your important documents, pictures, software installers, and other personal data before beginning the process. If you are not currently backing up your data, you need to do so immediately.
CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying ntuser.dat to your appropriate Windows system directory. CubedLabs typically does not release YouTube Download & Convert DAT files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing ntuser.dat and all other DAT files for YouTube Download & Convert. An incorrectly installed DAT file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
