My computer came with Google Desktop loaded on. I keep getting a pop-up box with a message I don't understand and don't know how to fix it:
Original API DLL:C:\PROGRA~1\Google\GOOGLE~1\GOOGLE~3.DLL Current API DLL:C:\PROGRA~1\Google\GOOGLE~1\GOOGLE~2.EXE
I uninstalled Google Desktop from mine the minute I got my Beast....
I would suggest the same for you.... this Utility (Although I do Love Google) is worthless and memory/resource hungry.... get rid of it, That's MHO.
Do I do that through Add/Delete programs and will it be a clean removal that won't cause other issues with my laptop?
Yes super easy....
XP.... go to Control Panel, Add&Remove Programs.... Uninstall, confirm
Vista.... go to Control Panel, Programs&Features.... right click and uninstall. Click ok to UAC
You may or may not be asked to restart after it's done. Regardless, my rule of thumb and MHO, Restart after any system changes small or large.... and you will be better off.
Once you remove this app, you should have a more robust Windows experience.
