Prior to Windows 2000 this registry tweak works and removed the DLL from ram "sooner", or almost immediatelly after aplication that load them, closed and there is no use of them anymore:

REGEDIT4

;always unload dll - myth for better memory management, removed
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"AlwaysUnloadDll"="1"

However todays this thing does not work - I hope no-one is using Win95 or Win98... :D

So, this does nothing on WIndows 2000 or XP.
How and is there somewhere specified the time, for witch is the dll kept in memory in Win2k/XP...? And it is editable by regedit or one has to go low-level and user resource hacker or even HEX editor...?

Anyone know?
