missing read only file

Ive installed spyblaster and spywareguard as ive seen them recommended here on many occasions and during the installation for both of them I got a message saying that a read only file was missing I carried on with the installations anyway and they both seem fine but Im worried that they might not really be working.Could the missing file be important?

Do you remember the name of the file?

No Im sorry I dont but I could uninstall then reinstall if that would help.

Uninstall one of them then re-install please.

ok Ill do that now.

Ive done that and the full message says c:/windows/system32/msinet/ocx the existing file is marked as read only click retry to remove the read only attribute and try again, ignore to skip this file(thats what I did)or abort to cancel installation.

This file should be found click here

Find it in Windows Explorer, Right click it and select Properties. Take the tick out of Read Only.
