You guessed it right. Kernel32.dll is an important dll file. This dll file is associated with the essential system files of Windows. It is also called Windows NT Base API Client DLL. Kernel32.dll is an important file that ensures programs work properly.

DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files are shared files that are used by the operating system on your computer to run the programs installed on it successfully. Since these are shared files, DLL files are not associated with the program that installed them on the computer in the first place. If a dll file is missing or corrupt, it can negatively affect the workings of the program associated with it. Therefore, if kernel32.dll goes missing, all programs associated with it will not work properly. Thus, dll files are very important.
