You can inspect a program with Dependency Walker that allows you see what DLL libraries are used by each process.

To inspect a program and find out its dependent modules (DLLs, Drivers, etc), you can follow these steps:

1. Double click on C:\fyicenter\ProcessExplorer\depends.exe to start Dependency Walker.

2. Click "File > Open" menu to open the program you want to inspect, for example, C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

3. Review the dependent modules tree. For example, click "MOZGLUE.DLL", details of MOZGLUE.DLL are displayed.

The top section displays all DLLs as a dependency tree representing the relation of one DLL invokes other DLLs.

The second section displays all DLLs in a simple list sequentially.

The picture below shows you the Dependency Walker screen showing DLLs of the Firefox process: of the Performance Graph tab on Process Explorer
