Zonealarm will not install

  Tycho 23:16 27 Dec 2007

My new laptop with Vista Home Premium is refusing to install ZA. I am using the downloaded file zaSetup_en. This needs the internet connectio to allow it to download further data.

At a point fairly early in the installation I get an error:

Validation fialed for C:\Wndows\System32\VSINIT.dll

After I OK this I can continue with the wizard and elect for a clean install.

All seems OK but the computer then locks up and needed a forced shutdown and restart to get things going again.

Any ideas?

I worked down the posts one by one and stopped when I successfully followed buteman's suggestion and installed Comodo. I now have the firewall and Defense+ installed and am assuming that I am now as safe as I was with ZoneAlarm.

Unless I hear anything to the contrary I will live with that.

Many thanks to all.
