dll files

I have a program called "dll informant" which has compiled a list of hundreds of dll files and has a column marked "useage count". Many of the dll files have a zero useage count, and are apparently not used. Can I delete them?

NO:

dll files are important for windows to run if you delete the wrong ones, some of the programs in windows will not run or you will start getting errors, or BSOD

You can have dll's that are same name but different versions. In XP dll's mostly reside in System32 Folder. But they can be also loaded in a Program folder as well

Messing with dlls without in-depth knowledge of what each specific one does is playing with fire. Don't touch them is the best advice.
