I seldom post here so I am guessing I should post in the Win 7  forum.  I have Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit with free version of Bitdefender AV. Today, BD quarantined a DLL associated with Photoshop CS5 Extended. The DLL name is axe8sharedexpat.dll and is essential to Photoshop. I couldn't un-quarantine the file so I had to delete it. Since then I completed a full scan and my system comes up clean.  


Now I have a couple questions:  


1. I am concerned about locating a safe site to download the needed DLL. I did a search on the installation CD for all DLL's but that one was not on the disc. Can someone recommend a safe site where I can download the file?


2. Since I simply deleted the DLL, will I have to go through the process of registering the replacement DLL or can I just 'copy and drop' in the correct folder?    


3. If I have to register the DLL, I have read that it will have to be registered twice, yes? 32 & 64-bit version? If so, details how I do that would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks in advance...

The named file, when not an indication of malware, seems to be commonly associated with Adobe Reader and/or Adobe Acrobat.


IMO, I would simply uninstall/reinstall said apps, assuming that I wanted to replace it.

Is it creating a problem for photoshop? If you're still able to use it I wouldn't go through too much trouble. If you can't start the program then I'd do as hamluis suggested and reinstall PS.
