Dll program - Files that have a dll extension are called modules/functions or programs loaded into memory.
Purpose of this file:
Alot.dll is a DLL module and it most likely was installed by you at sometime in the past. The exact file location is shown below, always verify the location to make sure it is in the proper folder, as often spyware and virus writers place similiar names elsewhere in an attempt to make you think it is some other file. This file is part of the Emusic toolbar and it runs in your web browser. This runs as a BHO in your web browser, and many have reported that they do not know how this appeared on their browser. Use a BHO remover if you wish to remove this from your browser or look for an uninstall option. If you use this then you can leave it, but if it were on my computer I would remove this as I personally don't like any of these ad displaying toolbar programs.
