Hi! where l live, l cannot get a decent computer repair man; Oregon! duh. :confused: :woot: l got a " free download manager" which l tried to dump, soon after. it took over, and was confusing_. l have Chrome browser, Windows 7, hp Pavilion, new computer, a bit. century link dsL. good downloading.

now, l can't get rid of "npf-something-error, ". "which l can't find.l have tried! for months!it says, "the download manager it not properly installed" -duh, l dumped it! but something is left, it wont let Me stream movies! the initiaLs are "npf dm. dll "but I can't even find it in a search! and it moved, it said (the computer) said, it can't find it!

HOW do l get rid of it?? :surrender: it is not in programs; l looked everywhere, l used all the advice on the web.it will not show, under "start", so finding it, and getting rid of it, is like bad malware! I scanned for malware, virus, still Not-off. short of dumping All Chrome, (l think it was "chrome free download manager ") and dumping everything on 'puter, how do l get this error message off my machine?

finding it, alone, is a task of Hercules! Help! this is BAD! Has anyone else heard of this?

How long ago did you install the download manager?
