regsvr32

Microsoft... the only place where regsvr32 is not only a verb (meaning "to register a DLL using the utility 'regsvr32'"), but a verb you can hear people use while they're walking by.

I'm almost afraid to ask, but do they use it as a verb in any sense other than using the program?...

No, it just means to use the program. Nobody says "I'm regsvr32ing to the bathroom; be right back."
