Many times when I try to download a file either with Google Chrome or Firefox, I get the following error: (but not with Internet Explorer)

ERR[3]: FreshDownload could not take over the download!
Click 'Back' button to return to normal mode.

Can anyone explain this?

Hi -
Try this command to remove / uninstall FreshDownload

1) Start > Run > cmd
2) enter this: regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Fresh Devices\FreshDownload\FDcatch.dll"

Thank You -

Within Control Panel > Programs and Features nothing exists beginning with 'Fresh'. No 'FreshDevices' and no 'Fresh Downloads'.

However, within Google Chrome, I entered 'about:plugins' and disabled 'FreshDownloads' and everything works fine there.

Now what to do about Firefox?

Wow! I found a 'Fresh Downloads' plugin in Firefox and disabled it. No more ERR 3. Thanks everyone.
