This is taken from Webopedia:
A DLL is:
Short for Dynamic Link Library, a library of executable functions or data that can be used by a Windows application. Typically, a DLL provides one or more particular functions and a program accesses the functions by creating either a static or dynamic link to the DLL. A static link remains constant during program execution while a dynamic link is created by the program as needed. DLLs can also contain just data. DLL files usually end with the extension .dll,.exe., drv, or .fon.
A DLL can be used by several applications at the same time. Some DLLs are provided with the Windows operating system and available for any Windows application. Other DLLs are written for a particular application and are loaded with the application.

I don't think you have to register any DLLs in Win 98.  I think it is only with win XP.    If you did have to register a DLL it would be during the installation of some type of application or a piece computer hardware.

It's a superstition of mine that they get answered more quickly that way.

Given four Application Extensions (ASPtear.dll, wddx_com.dll, xmlparse.dll, and xmltok.dll), walk me through installing all DLLs and registering ASPtear.dll and wddx_com.dll.

Neither of those files is present in all 3 of my Windows systems (98, ME, XP.)  I did a search for asptear.dll and found this page:
