This all depends on how the setup routine was devised. Some programs
just simply overwrite without question. Others will ask if you want to
overwrite existing dlls. Some more sophisticated setup routines will
move existing (duplicate) dlls to a holding location. Therefore, during
uninstall, the dlls are moved back.

On a side note, some people mentioned problems with installing/running
Internet Explorer on NT. I believe that you have to have the NT Service
Pack 3 installed before loading IE4. The service pack information
should appear during boot (during the initializing NT blue screen).
