Just downloaded Zone Alarm Free Edition on a friends computer (same spec as mine) Win98SE. 40gb HDD, 256mb SDRAM. But when trying to install we get "Validation failed for c:\windows\temp\vsinit.dll" What's that all about please. It works OK on my computer.
John, yes he did have Zonealarm on it previously but uninstalled it, and he does get a message on screen everytime he boots (not sure what it is) but the last line says "Press any key to continue" and it boots OK. I reckoned the best bet was to re-install Zonealarm and then un-install again to overcome that problem. We downloaded ZA again to do just that but it won't install. The un-install was done from Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programmes and seemed to go OK.
VoG™. thank you for the link, will study it.
The next time I see him is Tuesday 20th April so it would be nice to have an answer for him.
VoG™. Another thanks but that is for ZA Pro? The file that is causing the problem is vsutil.dll which is how I found out that it was ZA causing the problem. This file is "missing" so can I just copy this file to his computer?
