U need your .dll s for programs to run. When a virus hit my comp while back it deleted all my dll files and couldnot use any program. If ya wanna remove spyware and stuff delete your cookies. This also stops junk email as if you are using hotmail your address is in cookies and some spyware read this and send it to companies.
