    I'm looking for an excellent DLL-Cleaner for WinXP.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Smokey,

    Hi, Locate.com should do that. Note I tried installing an ancient version of Office (just to get Access) did not have any luck. Removed office '97. Then I ran locate.com (finds only .dll's), which found orphaned .dll's from Office '97 uninstall. I then copied the list of orphaned .dll's, to another folder, deleted the homeless .dll's & all was/is well.

    Nevermind if you've already checked it out & it does not suit your needs.

    Take Care

    Why do you think you need to get ride of redundent and unused DLLS?

    If you think your system has become overloaded with crap, please reformat.

    You think I have extra time? LOL

    No I don't but I do know that reformat is the key.

    Try it , you may like it. Everything gets faster.

    Micrososft even recommends it now.

    Even though I never will be MVP in their eyes, I am happy they took my suggestion on REFORMAT.

    It is appropriate for ‘PC Cleaner’ to list System32\BOOT.DLL ? ;P

    Don't forget to backup or image before you remove any dll's
