7-zip.dll is a core component of 7-Zip, the well-known and OPEN SOURCE file archiver application for Windows. Its open source, idiots, and has NO reported malware, therefore should be regarded as not "essential" but quite useful and completely safe. By comparison, Windows itself is a deathtrap. God almighty you folks are total tards. I use 7-Zip on 8 Windows machines and wouldn't imagine not having it installed (due to windows brain damaged zip capability).
  Stuffit, tard. This site is lame.   (further information)

I downloaded 7-zip. So many others rated it hightly, It also download about six other programs at the same time. Diffifcult to remove those unnessary those six. I do not trust 7-zip.dll just because you can not remove the thing even after deleting the 7-zip program. Go figure? Harmless? I say not harmless.
