    Today during the installation of the latest version 2.0.70 i received a, can't find ADVAPI32.DLL, message. I do have that file in Windows/System which is v4.80.1675 on 98se.

    Arovax Shield states that it works on 98 upwards, so why should there be a problem ? The previous version of Arovax Shield i tried a few months ago worked fine.

    Any insight would be very welcome.

    TIA

    StevieO. I looked in the Arovax Forum under the RoadMap thread there, and back on October 3rd, version 2.0.27 and of course onward only works on Windows 2000, and XP. Do you have an older system? If not, try posting you're problem in their Forum. Not that someone won't try and help you here, but I'm sure someone there can also help.

    Yeah if you have Windows 98 I think only Arovax version 1 will work... Sorry.

    Thanks for the replies.

    On here

    http://www.arovaxshield.com/overview.php?sid=pfpcuca6qd812jt0d4l4iukeb0

    it shows 98 as compatable

    Also it says "Where is a need there is a way"

    I was extremely impressed with results from Arovax Shield in here

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=129548&page=4

    especially as they all appear to have been blocked by behavior, rather than as in a signature based product might be expected to achieve.

    So is there a way with 98, or is the website in error ?

    Not sure if the webpage is not correct or not. Read the Oct. 3, 2006 news item for the software on this link. It says the new version will work on XP/2000 PCs only.

    Yeah the arovax sites don't get updated alot, unless new versions are released, but the forum says xp/2000 so it is definitively right
