Hi Curious

DLL files are support files used by applications
Because applications often share DLL files, if the DLL files were removed when you uninstall one application, you could be crippling another application.

Off Hand the w955cm.dll doesen't ring a bell
It can be an application you installed one of the
OS'es and did not on the other..

Depending on your drive layout , dependencies
may be a factor.

This is a DLL Locator
for Microsoft Products

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=/servicedesks/fileversion/dllinfo.asp

There may be other resources like this for your other products

This should give you a good start..

Take Care my friend
