Default Duplicate/redundant DLL files

My ashampoo optimizer program says I have 185 MB of redundant dll files, but that I should only delete them if I know what I'm doing. since space and speed is a big issue with me, should I just delete them all?

Send a message via Yahoo to talldude123

Use CCleaner, and tell it to clean the registry.

I do that regularly, but CCleaner doesn't detect nearly as many unused dlls.

I'm now trying DLL Toys International Edition 2004 vR4, since it seems to do a good job of identifying which ones aren't needed, and makes automatic backups of all of them.
