    User Interface

    Rating Average

    User interface of the application is very nice, filled with rich graphics and information. The application is very easy to use and every option is available at your finger tips. When you launch the application, you will be taken to the scanning section where you can scan your system for hidden dlls that might damage your computer system.

    Click the Start Scan button and within few seconds a detailed report containing all the dlls running on your system and their threat level will be displayed on the screen. I ran it for the first time and had no dlls that were a threat to my computer system.

    Double click on any of the dll to view more information about it. You can also remove all or a selected dll from your system by clicking the remove dll or remove dll from all button.

    1 On the top, you can also notice a Process Viewer tab. Click on it to view the processes currently running on your system along with complete details like description, process id, company, memory occupied, file size, etc.

    Last tab is the DLL Tracer that allows you to trace a dll based on the keyword supplied by the user.

    Conclusion

    Rating Average

    After considering the features, pricing and the user interface part, I rate this application 4 out of 5. If the application had more number of features, I would have definitely rated it 5 out of 5.

    Note: Users should be cautious before removing a dll, otherwise you might end up with corrupted window or application malfunctioning.
