When you want a quick view of what's running in the background and what your available system resources are, DLL Show for Windows give you an instant snapshot. Bring up the viewer, and you'll see a list of all running processes and their DLL dependencies. Just click on any listed item to view the DLL's that process uses.

You can also view available system, swap file and RAM resources, view a complete list of Windows 95 error codes (and their descriptions) for your particular software verson, and print out your listings anytime.

It's a convenient way to check out your active resources. DLLShow can be configured to use additional tools, as you specifiy, and optionally installs an icon in the system tray. I've found it the handiest way I know to find out what needs to be unloaded at a given time.

The program has a 30-day evaluation period and is completely functional without any nag reminders.
