Windows 7: Orphan dll file?

30 Dec 2012   #1

Orphan dll file?

On my secondary HD, used for backups, I have a gdiplus.dll sitting by itself on the root, not in a folder. My checking indicates that this is a Windows file, and since my system is working fine, I assume that this is not the one I need, which is undoubtedly somewhere on my C drive. Is it safe to delete this? If not, what should I do? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure Win7 isn't using that file as all its critical stuff is tucked away and hidden, dll are files used by programs as well.

QUick googling shows that it's used by Sandboxie, anyway, I'd simply place it in a folder and see if some program starts malfunctioning.
