Sometimes when I install certain things, like the newest version of flash, I get this message that says " Bad Image

C:\Windows\system32\dbghelp.dll is either not designed to run on
Windows or it contains a error. Try nstalling the program again using
the original installation media or contact your system adminstrator or
the software vendor for support




The installation itself finishes and my flash still works, but after I've installed it doesn't have the little animation show up that says it installs properly and I apparently don't have something called a "flash debugger" or anything. Does anyone know how to fix this without re-installing my operating system? Scans with Malwarebytes or an Anti-virus doesn't fix this either.

Hi,gbghelp.exe belongs to windows debug tools .not 100% sure on the fix but I would start by getting and installing windows debugging to ,it will replace the dbghelp.ddll file and may solve you error issue .

To obtain the latest version of DbgHelp.dll, go to [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms679309(v=vs.85).aspx] and download Debugging Tools for Windows.
