lz32.dll Information And Error Fix

What is a DLL?

DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files contain computer code and resources that can be used by several programs at the same time. This uses less system memory and makes the system run more efficiently.  DLL files give program developers the ability to reuse code to add features to several programs without the need to write new code for each one.

Many programs rely on DLL files to function properly so when one is corrupted or missing it will lead to program crashes and poor system performance.

Lz32.dll is part of the compression and expansion tools in the Windows operating system(OS).

Lz32.dll is also associated with the compress.exe and expand.exe processes of the Windows OS and both processes require the file in order to function. The lz32.dll file provides them with the needed codes to carry out their funtion which is to compress and expand files. If this file is missing from the OS and you attempt to open a compressed file it may crash your system.
