When I view .exe and .dll files (Delphi 3.0) with Quick View Plus I see a lot of information on these files (import & export tables, header info, ...). How can this information be removed or reduced to the strictest minimum?

Yo,
the only information to reduce are the export tables, but only if you have a proper alternative to interface with other modules. E.g. if you write a DLL and call some of their functions form an EXE, Windows must know where the function entry points in the DLL are located. You could pass a private structure through one function to the EXE that contains all other entry points, and then bind to these functions. Also, you could export the functions by indices, not by name.
The rest of the information (header, imports, resource blocks etc.) cannot be removed. They are essential part of the PE module structure, so that they can be executed by the OS.
