How to Clean Dll Files


Dll files consist of links a computer uses to run software. When a program is installed, they are entered into the registry where they can be used to configure the program. They can become corrupt with time and cause programs to freeze and run into errors. The safest way to clean and remove dll files is by using a registry cleaning program. These programs are not only effective in performing this task, but also make sure that it is done safely without damaging system components.

  • Download and install a free registry cleaner program such as CCleaner (see Reources). CCleaner is formulated to search for dll files in the registry.

  • Launch the program after it has installed and click the "Registry" button on the left panel. Under "Registry Integrity," place a check on the "Missing shared dlls" option. You can also place a check on all the other options under the "Registry Integrity" to search for other problematic registry files.

  • Click "Scan for issues." CCleaner will scan the registry for unecessary dll files that have become corrupt or have been left over by uninstalled programs.

  • Click "Fix selected issues" when the scan is complete and click "Yes" to backup the registry. Type in a name for the backup and click "Save."

  • Click "Fix all selected issues" when the backup is complete, and click "OK" to clean and remove the dll files and other unnecessary registry components.

  • Close CCleaner to complete the process. Clean the registry at least once every week to remove unnecessary dll files that cause system errors.
