What is a DLL?
Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL) are files that contain computer code and resources that can be used by several programs at the same time. This uses less system memory and makes your system run more efficiently. DLL files allow program developers to reuse code to add features to multiple programs without writing new code for each one.
There are many programs that rely on DLL files to function properly so when one is corrupted or missing it will cause program errors and poor system performance.
