I've recently attempted to install the HP C7280 All-in-One and the following pop-up soon appeared:
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\hpzidr12.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.
The pop-up's blue bar read:
DeviceI0 Notification Window: hpqtra08.exe - Bad Image

I've searched the web for solutions and a number of software programs offer to scan for free and repair for a fee. This would not have been a problem if it weren't for the various complaints associated to every one of these software programs.

To confuse me further it was recommended that I find the correct file and replace it with the one causing me problems.

I understand the dll files are shared by various programs to enable their simultaneous use and avoid the clogging of overlapping and redundant code.

I don't know where to begin to repair this problem, which appears to have spread as I can no longer access the web through Mozilla.

I am game to replace the file but I would need some information, where is the correct file and what is the procedure to replace it? Or I am willing to purchase a sotware that will do it for me but would need some recommendations.

Thank you very much for any suggestions you may have to offer.

I'd just reload the drivers for the printer. That DLL comes with the printer drivers, I happen to have the same printer.
