The compobj.dll DLL is embedded in the Windows operating system for the Object Linking and Embedding 2.1 16/32 Interoperability. The module is essential when the user install DCOM95 on a US version of Windows. The compobj.dll file searches for a matching file version on a set of known DLLs in Windows applications. Otherwise, a message about a version mismatch in the file compobj.dll will appear.
This message usually appears after restarting the computer when completing the installation. However, after the user dismisses the message box, the system replaces the compobj.dll module installed by DCOM95 with the already present compobj.dll file. This is because DCOM95 does not install a localized version of the said file and a language conflict between DCOM95’s English version of the library and the international version occurs.
The compobj.dll application is instrumental in any of the OLE 16/32-bit platform programs that is dynamically loaded in order to avoid a general protection fault to appear when accidentally unloaded. The compobj.dll file, which forms part of the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) protocol, may not decrement an instance counter and never fully unload the Visual Basic program.
When several instances of a 16-bit Microsoft Visual Basic program are operated simultaneously and then shut down, they all seem to close. However, the compobj.dll program may still appear in the task list. Once a computer has experienced this problem, the operating system may need to be rebooted to clear up the problem.
In any attempt to insert a Draw object from Microsoft Works 2000 into a Microsoft Office program, such as Word, the user may receive a general protection fault in the module compobj.dll. This behavior can occur under the conditions that a 16-bit version of Microsoft Office, such as Office 4.3, is installed in the computer or the said version is upgraded to Microsoft Works 2000 over a 16-bit version of Works.
Any incompatibilities experienced by the Windows user on the compobj.dll program shall be consulted with its author before a decision to remove the file from the system is reached.

What is a DLL?
Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.
DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.
When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.
Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
