Unloading Out-of-Control DLLs

When I work with VB under Windows 95, I'll often do something with a program that causes Windows 95 to be unstable. Normally, I would shut down Windows 95 and restart to clear out all loaded VBXs and DLLs, but I recently found an easier way.

Create a DOS batch file called RESTART.BAT with these contents on your hard drive:


Within Windows 95, create a shortcut to this batch file. Under the properties, make sure that you select MS-DOS mode under 'Program / Advanced'. This method is much faster than rebooting the machine.
