Can no longer import books into calibre

Ever since a few updates ago, I can no longer import books into calibre. I don't really know what I did, but whenever i try and copy a book into the program, I get this error

calibre, version 3.36.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>ZipImportError</b>:bad local file header: C:\Program Files\Calibre2\app\pylib.zip

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\actions\add.py", line 334, in files_dropped
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\actions\add.py", line 437, in _add_books
ZipImportError: bad local file header: C:\Program Files\Calibre2\app\pylib.zip

Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: I would like to add that I can use calibre to read books outside the library fine, as well as edit existing books. It's only importing them that's an issue

Uninstall, delete C:\Program Files\Calibre2
(or wherever you chose to install calibre). Then re-install. And
dont worry, uninstalling will not affect your books/settings.

That worked like a charm. Thanks Kovid. I love the program.
