Dll Orphans is a powerful utility to remove the DLL files entries in the registry left by installed programs during uninstallation. Dll Orphans does not delete the DLL file making it possible to retrieve the registry entry in case of any erroneous removal. This utility has been designed to be simple to the user with easy to use interface though the complexity in the functionality of the program demands skill and expert knowledge in ensuring seamless execution.

Dll Orphans provides a list of DLL files along with its usage on the click of the scan button. Post scan, a summary of information on the status bar provides the number of dll files, entries with missing files and entries with usage count as 0. The entries with missing files are automatically selected and the user can proceed to delete them. Considering the sensitivity of the operation, a backup of the registry is provided for every registry entry of DLL removed to ensure recovery in case of any failure in the operation. Expert users have the provision to select the files from the listed DLL files for deletion depending on their knowledge and discretion. Rescan can be done to ensure that the entries with missing files are 0 to ascertain the success of the operation.
