Yes, that was actually the idea behind the DLL. A good example would be winsock.dll - the dll behind all the networking functionality in windows, used by tons of applications. Usually a shared dll is stored in \system32, and a reference counter is maintained so that the number of applications actually using the dll is known. The reason: the dll must survive an uninstall, if it is still used by other applications.

What is the best file system for Windows XP?

The NTFS file system will allow you to use the full capabilities of Windows XP. For example. EFS (encrypted file system) will only work on an NTFS partition. However, if you have upgraded from a previous version of Windows to Windows XP it is likely that your file system will be FAT32.
