Removing/deleting dll files in win 8 64bit

I have three dll files that I cannot remove because it says they are always in use by win explorer. the three files are... FrameUtility.dll LibFrame.dll ShredderContentMenu.dll and relate to a shredder program that somehow failed to uninstall properly or else I didn't do it correctly.

I know there is a way of some sort using regsvr32 but my attempt didn't work. Any help or advice would be appreciated please. ab68

Thanks have tried that but with no success. Have tried the regsvr32 attempt again but am getting a box up saying cannot find the file do do some de bugging etc. I'm not getting to deep and into that so will leave well alone. Its not really a problem its just that I know they are there.

Was it Egistec Shredder? You probably tried uninstalling when it still had processes running.

Download it again (the trial is free, just hit the download button) - re-install, make sure the shredder itself is not running (Ctrl-Shift-Escape to bring up task manager, close any likely looking tasks), then try uninstall again

Yes it was. Have downloaded and tried to install but it will not go. Previous attempts have been tried with the result that it says a later installation of shredder is installed will not go. This time I am getting the reply....."This product shredder is already installed preventing the installation of this product. The two products are incompatible" so.......

Will probably do a factory re set sometime.
