Windows 7: Two different copies of same .dll

Two different copies of same .dll

Hello,
Apparently a problem I had thought fixed had resurfaced. Upon investigation I find that 2 programs use the same "delzip179.dll". I have had failures to load errors in Administrative Events. I've found that there are two different copies of the same named (above) .dll. Could this be the cause of a problem? If so, how would one rectify it? Thanks for any assistance.

Do you use Spybot?

Hello Petey7,
I did. I did not use the Spybot uninstaller. I also use a program called Mozbackup which I need. It seems they both use the .dll, but each has a different version. I found this out after I reloaded Spybot. The idea was to use the Spybot uninstaller to get rid of it all. But at this moment I am concerned over the effects of the 2 different versions of the same .dll. I don't have an easy way of doing away with Mozbackup, which backups settings from Firefox and Thunderbird. I've kept copies of important email in these backups. This leaves me at a lose.
Thanks for your reply.

Right click the DLL and choose properties. Look though it on both carefully. You might be able to find out which is which and delete it. How did you remove spybot?

Hello Again Petey7,
I removed it with Windows uninstaller and then did a Advanced SystemCare to clean up what was left. The next time, as that didn't work, I downloaded Revo Uninstaller Pro, which seems very good. I read that by reinstalling Spybot you would get the .dll for it back, in uncorrupted or whatever condition. I did a search and found one in a Spybot subdirectory and the other one elsewhere. What struck me was the dates were about a year apart. Now with the new Spybot .dll, maybe I can keep it and use it, as well as the Mozbackup. I only uninstalled it to do away with the error to find "delzip179.dll", that mentioned Mozbackup. Since I needed Mozbackup more than Spybot. Without knowledge I have no way to decide what to do next. I guess I can sit around and watch for symptoms. I do know that the last time I installed Spybot as an administrator. It seemed to run as it always did, as does Mozbackup. Extremely confused. Ignorance is a major stumbling block in proper decision making.
Here is what I see and are my choices:

Any opinions or ideas are welcome.

If your not going to use spybot or at least don't have it installed at the moment, try to delete the one that says spybot in the file location.

Petey7,
Since I decided to use Spybot, which I am used to, I went the other route. I renamed the copy in the Spybot subdirectory and copied the newer on from Mozbackup, there. Thank you for you help. I am attempting to not view the event viewer for a week. If nothing outwordly shows up, I'll know in a week. If it does, I will delete Spybot with the Spybot uninstaller.
Take care
