How can I fix the gpapi.dll error in Windows 10?

1. Use a dedicated DLL repair tool

The fastest way of solving the gpapi.dll error is to find and download the file into the original folder. You can do this by accessing a dedicated dll library, and download the correct igdumdim64.dll file based on your device.

These libraries are usually updated frequently and searching the file based on your system details( 64-, or 32-bit) you should have no problems in finding the right one.

DLLs and registries are valuable data libraries that Windows uses in order to run properly.

Because of that, damaged or missing dlls or registry keys can be a leading cause for crashes, freezes, error messages, and they can even prevent you from launching software and Windows features altogether.

Unfortunately, registries and DLLs are clusters of data that even advanced users have a hard time tweaking properly without guidance, and even Microsoft advices against it.

More so, resetting your Windows OS is among the only truly effective solutions to fix these errors, but this solution has far too many drawbacks.
