What is a DLL?

Dynamic Link Library (DLL) files contain computer code and resources that can be used by multiple programs at the same time. This uses less system memory and makes your 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 all new code for each one.

There are many programs that rely on DLL files to function properly and some of them are even required by the operating system to function. When one of these files is damaged or missing it will cause program crashes and poor system performance.
