Kdbhook.dll error can be caused by removing a certain program which is shared by another program or system. Incomplete or bad installation can also cause for the file to go missing. It can also be mistakenly deleted by a virus or spyware or other users.

You can try to download kdbhook.dll file to replace the old or missing one to fix the error. Back up your files before installing the file. But most often than not, registry related entries would have been most likely modified or corrupted once the dll errors occurred.

If you are receiving this error on starting up Windows 7, the problem has something to do with one of your startup programs called “Key Changer.” The error is triggered by “Keychanger.exe” because the application is missing a file called “kbdhook.dll”. To fix the problem, simply reinstall your Key Changer program. This should restore the missing file back to its original location.

In case the missing DLL file is not really missing but the program is still triggering this error, it indicates that the file is corrupt. Reinstalling the program will also fix the problem. If you no longer have the installer for the program, unfortunately, you need to uninstall it to remove the error during startup. Click “Start,” “Control Panel,” and then “Add or Remove Programs.”

Scroll down and select your Key Changer program and click “Uninstall” or “Remove” then follow the instructions. Restart your computer if you are prompted. This should fix the problem.
