    1. Uninstall the version you have installed

    2. Use the CS Cleaner Tool http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html

    3. Restart the computer

    4. Make a new install.

    After I deleted Adobe File Manager because it was always popping up annoyingly, I got a similar "damaged application - reinstall" message. However, InDesign didn't seem to be affected. Nevertheless, I reinstalled AFM, and fixed the problem, except for the annoying appearances of AFM.

     

    If it's not present on your system, you can search Google for "download adobe application manager mac" without quotes, to download and install it.
