DbgHelp.dll is part of the DbgHelp library that ships with Microsoft Windows. I'm not sure why the installation of Zone Alarm is looking for it as I never have used Zone Alarm.

You can use System File Checker/Microsoft Windows Resource Checker in Windows 7 as follows:

BTW, there is always the option to use Windows built-in Firewall instead of using ZA.
