A DLL is a dynamic library link............it's a Windows operating system component.  If a DLL is corrupted or damaged you need to replace the DLL with an undamaged file or delete it.  The problem is that DLL's are shared between various programs (such as the DLL for voice in SL may be shared with some other program).  You need to find which DLL's are damaged and search for them (Google works) and repair the damaged files.   You can start here to learn a little more about DLL's:

First thing I would do is quit using SL until I fixed those files.  Uninstall it and search your computer for any files left after the uninstall and manually delete them.  Then go find those DLL's and reinstall them before you try to use SL again.  When you crashed your computer crashed (I mean your operatiing system crashed).  That's a little more serious than SL crashing (a program crashing will not take out system files like DLL's.........only files specific to SL might be damaged).  Once you get all your trouble fixed next time you see a griefing attack, TP away.  Your system got over whelmed enough that the operating system crashec......that's unusual but it happens.  Usually a marginally spec'd computer for SL are the computers that have system crashes when things get heavy like they sometimes do in SL.
