    You can try disabling the google update Service from Service manager..

    Run services.msc from search and hit enter, then look for the service related to that specific error and try disabling it.

    Another option I would suggest is to uninstall the program and try reinstalling it.

    I believe this file is library for Free Doanload Manager, try uninstalling it or reinstall that application.

    sambec22--I am not sure that is a legitimate file.  Searching on Google finds nothing.  You may have malware on the PC.  Scan with your antivirus and MalwareBytes.
    If you find no malware, show us a screenshot of the error message.

    Accepted Solution

    Go to
    Start menu > Run > msconfig > startup tab

    Then uncheck anything that you think is related to the dll.

    You can also check the services tab for anything suspicious.
