"Close" is correct.  Microsoft's DllUnload() call will flag the DLL,
but it's still "in use" by the system for ~10minutes.  There's no
way to force it, override it, or get around it.  They won't even
make exceptions for people who pay a lot of money to be their
friends.  This is accurate as of NT4 sp6a and Win2k.  I've no idea
about XP.
