When uninstalling software you are sometimes asked if you want to allow deletion of shared DLLs. If you are not 100% sure, better say No. If you have a recent full system backup, then you may reply Yes (which will allow you to restore if you deleted something by mistake).
Welcome to the CC forum, by the way!

I have no idea if it is safe to delete them. I don't even know what missing shared DLL's are lol
thank for the welcome

However, sometimes references to these DLLs are still left in the registry, hence "Missing Shared DLL"s.
Always let Ccleaner take a backup of registry entries to be deleted, in which case it is pretty safe to delete just about anything Ccleaner find.

I had the exact same question that Fred Nerk had:

How do you know what is safe to delete?
Missing shared DLL
You have partially answered it for me. You also said (as explained in my previous post).
Too learn more about DLL, I would like to go to this previous post but I don’t know how. What do I do?
Also, there are other issues in my present scan e.g. ActiveX/COM Issue, Help File Issue.
May I ask about these in this thread or must I post a new (or search for this) question?

What you you mean? Something to do with CCleaner's registry cleaner or with some othet software scanning DLL's?

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.
Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)
ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
