UnDLL is a specific application for Windows 2000 and Windows XP that can completely remove Dynamic Link Libraries (Dlls) that are currently in use in Windows.

This comes in very handy if the computer has been infected by an aggressive virus, trojan or other malicious software but also in other situation where a malicious or otherwise misbehaving dll has to be removed from the system.

The DLL Remover works by pointing the application to a dll on the system which initiates four actions in the software.

It searches for infected threads, deleted infected files, deletes entries in the Windows Registry and restarts the computer at the end to complete the operation.

UnDLL can be dowloaded from the Italian ESET (Essential Security against Evolving Threats) website only.

Update: The UnDLL program is still available on the Italian ESET website, but it appears to have not been updated ever since our initial review of the program. While it should still work fine on versions of Windows it was designed for, it is likely that you will run into issues when you try to run the program on newer versions of the operating system.

I highly suggest you use a program like RegDLLView by Nirsoft instead which offers similar capabilities but is updated regularly by Nir Sofer. To use the portable program simply run it after download and unpacking, note that you need to run it with elevated rights on Vista and newer versions of Windows.

The program displays a list of all registered DLLs on the system indicating broken references with a red background which makes it easy to delete those entries from your PC. You can also save the current list into various formats, a HTML report for instance or as a CSV or XML file.
