Now take your computer or laptop and follow these steps to delete DLL files in your windows 10.

 Use "Windows" and "R" keys at the same time on your keyboard. This opens a "Run" box on your screen.
Type "CMD" and click the "OK" button. This launches the Windows Command Prompt utility.
Type "Regsvr32 /u /s C:\Path to file\file.dll" and press the "Enter" key. You must replace "Path to file" and "File.dll" with the actual path to your file and file name.
Type "Exit" and press "Enter" to close the Windows Command Prompt utility.

1. Click the "All files and folders" link in the Search window, and type the name of the .dll file you want to delete into the empty field. Click the "Search" button to begin the search.

2.Locate the file in the search results and take note of the file path,Typically, .dll files will be found in "C:\Windows\System32," but this can vary depending on the specific type of .dll file and the version of Windows you're using.

3. Right-click on the .dll file in the search results, and select "Delete" from the options that pop up. This will move the file to the Recycle Bin.

4. Click the "Start" button in Windows, and select "Run" from the Start Menu. Type "cmd" into the empty field, and click the "Run" button.

5. Type "regsvr32 /u C:\filepath\filename.dll" into the command line, substituting the specific file path and name of the file for "filepath" and "filename," respectively. For example, if you wanted to delete the file "windows.dll" from the file path "C:\Windows\System32," you would type "regsvr32 /u C:\Windows\System32\windows.dll." Press "Enter" after typing this line to unregister the .dll file from your system, completing the process

To delete unwanted or corrupt .dll files, you will need to find them by making hidden files visible, unregister them through Command Prompt, and then delete them manually from their source folder.

Open your DLL file's location. ...
Open the Start menu.
Click "Run".
Type "cmd" into Run's text field, then click "OK". ...
Type "cd" without the quotes and press ↵ Enter . ...
Type "regsvr32 -u (filename)dotdll" into Command Prompt. ...
Press ↵ Enter to unregister your DLL file.

Windows relies on several .dll files, also known as Dynamic Link Library files, to perform common functions. From time to time, you may need to delete a .dll file because of a software conflict or because you're updating an older .dll with a newer version. When you do this, you must be careful to not only move the file to the Recycle Bin, but also to unregister it from Windows.

1. Click the "Start" button in Windows and select "Search" from the Start Menu.

2. Click the "All files and folders" link in the Search window, and type the name of the .dll file you want to delete into the empty field.

3. Click the "Search" button to begin the search.

4. Locate the file in the search results and take note of the file path, which indicates where the file is stored. This is very important, because you will need to know the file path for the last steps, so you may want to write it down. Typically, .dll files will be found in "C:\Windows\System32," but this can vary depending on the specific type of .dll file and the version of Windows you're using.

5. Right-click on the .dll file in the search results, and select "Delete" from the options that pop up. This will move the file to the Recycle Bin.

6. Click the "Start" button in Windows, and select "Run" from the Start Menu.

7. Type "cmd" into the empty field, and click the "Run" button.

8. Type "regsvr32 /u C:\filepath\filename.dll" into the command line, substituting the specific file path and name of the file for "filepath" and "filename," respectively. For example, if you wanted to delete the file "windows.dll" from the file path "C:\Windows\System32," you would type "regsvr32 /u C:\Windows \System32\windows.dll." Press "Enter" after typing this line to unregister the .dll file from your system, completing the process

So many answers to this one question! Hats off to all of you! I have been a regular here, have been following this forum for quite some time. It’s indeed a great place to discuss such technical topics. I don’t think I need to add an answer from my side. It would be mere repetition. .

Please try this, I hope you can delete the dll file by replacing the path and file name

Open Command Prompt ->type "Regsvr32 /u /s C:\Path to file\file.dll"(replace path to file and file.dll with the actual path to your file and file name)
