setupapi.dll Fix Information
What is a DLL?
DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files contain computer code and resources that can be used by several programs at the same time. This uses less system memory and makes your system more efficient. DLL files give program developers the ability to use the same code and resources to make changes and add features to multiple programs without having to write new code for each one.
Many programs depend on DLL files to run properly so when there is a DLL that is corrupt or missing it causes program crashes and poor system performance.
