Unload Unused DLLs



After an application is closed, XP has the annoying habit of leaving the associated DLL files in memory. This can cause stability problems. Make the DLLs unload themselves from memory after the program done running.


Navigate to:
HLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AlwaysUnloadDLL

If the DWORD AlwaysUnload DLL is not present, you will need to create it. Set the Value of the “(Default)” setting to 1.

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
