You can search for the .dll name in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT which is in the registry. This is the only way I can think of.

There's also a Microosft utility called ListDLLs that may work for you:

Why do you want to check that?

There is no fool proof way to tell that, since all the DLLs are not registered in registry. Read the article below:

Though you may search if the dll is loaded or not by using the tool like process explorer. Just hit Control+F and search for the dll. If is returns then your dll is loaded.
