    Hi,

    I've been getting an error recently whenever I do almost anything on my laptop:

    "C:\\Windows\system32\mscms.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."

    I believe it may be related to Adobe Flash Player since Youtube says I have a missing plugin when I try to watch videos, but when I tried to re-install it failed.

    I've attached my HJT log.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    It's from Microsoft Color Matching System DLL.
