    On SSD it works without any hindrance but on the other hand it's not really needed with it's speed etc.

    Yeah, remember old "Unload DLLs" trick in XP and before ?
    I know it well. But it is nothing like what is claimed for it.
    Just a few problems:
    1. Not supported since Windows 2000.
    2. Applied only to explorer extension DLLs, not DLLs in general.
    3. Unloaded the DLLs from the process virtual address space but not from RAM.
    4. As DLLs are a shared resource they are a prime candidate for caching. Unloading a DLL from RAM before the RAM is needed for other purposes is a crime against performance.
