“Everyone has uninstalled programs at one point or another, just to be presented with that wonderful dialog asking whether or not we want to delete some ‘shared’ Windows resource… Do we? Does something else use that DLL file it’s asking about? Help!!! That’s where AnalogX DLL Archive comes in — it searches through all the files on your system and lets you know if any of them contain references to the DLL’s in question!
“AnalogX DLL Archive is super-simple to use, just click search and let it do its thing — once done, you’ll be presented with a list of all the DLL’s that don’t have references in the system! Then just select which ones you think aren’t necessary anymore and archive them — it’s that simple! Make a mistake? No problem, restoring DLL’s from the archive is just as simple – nothing is deleted until YOU delete it.”

“A question that I often get asked is ‘Do you know of a utility that will show me which DLLs are loaded on Windows 9x or NT?’. The answer I gave up until recently was ‘no’, until I discovered a tool in the Windows NT Resource Kit called tlist that does show this information. I decided to write a free-ware version, ListDLLs. Unlike tlist, however, ListDLLs is able to show you the full path names of loaded modules – not just their base names. In addition, ListDLLs will flag loaded DLLs that have different version numbers than their corresponding on-disk files (which occurs when the file is updated after a program loads the DLL), and can tell you which DLLs were relocated because they are not loaded at their base address.
“You can also get Process Explorer, a GUI-based version of this program, here at Sysinternals.”
