Question

can missing or damaged dll.files cause my computer to reboot and freeze

Answer

This question was answered on January 29, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

On versions of Windows before Windows 2000, installing software in addition to the operating system may overwrite shared system files such as dynamic link libraries (.dll files) and executable files (.exe files) When system files are overwritten, system performance becomes unpredictable, programs behave erratically, and the operating system may crash.

Be carefull not to delete necessary dll files.
