    Each time that I load a crash dump in the Windows Debugger, I get the following:

    Your debugger is not using the correct symbols
    In order for this command to work properly, your symbol path must point to .pdb files that have full type information.
    Certain .pdb files (such as the public OS symbols) do not contain the required information. Contact the group that
    provided you with these symbols if you need this command to work.

    Type referenced: nt!_KPRCB

    Since I think that the symbols were downloaded by the debugger itself, how do I correct this?

    I made a slight change in the symbol file path in accordance with the article and it seems to be working properly now. Thanks.
