sniffer.exe - Bad Image error

Upon opening Photoshop I've been receiving the following sniffer.exe - Bad Image error since last night: c\windows\system32\opencl.dll is either not designed to run on windows or contains an error.

Hi Nikki,

Which version of Photoshop are you using? Could you please check that the graphics card drivers on your computer are up to date? Refer this article https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/update-graphics-driver-windows-7.html 

Thanks,

I am using Photoshop CC 2018 and I have the latest graphics card driver for my laptop.

Solved my own problem. Found info on another thread that told user to rename the sniffer.exe and that cleared up the error.
