    Followed directions to disable all protection in SpywareBlaster 3.1,
    Then use Add/Remove to delete 3.1.
    Then download 3.2.

    Successful.

    Disabled AdAware, Spybot and McAfee.

    However, can not open file and get the following message.

    This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown.
    If problem persists, contact program vendor.

    I got this same message the last two times I downloaded 3.2, so went back to 3.1 just to have something installed.

    How do I get 3.2 installed, and running?

    This was my second attempt at a succesful install.

    Got the same result on the first try. Uninstalled it...tried again...same result.

    Anyone have any thoughts ? tia

    Since I posted this, I have had no luck with anything I have tried.

    Still get the same message.

    No thoughts from anyone on fix or work-around?

    Thanks for the reply, currently using

    Gateway G6-400 (199:cool:
    Win98SE
    IE6sp1
    64 Meg RAM

    And I know it's a bit antiquated. My brother (nearly a certified MSFT ENGR & techie) has also tried and failed to decipher the 3.2 delema (he smirks every time he visits and sees me using this old hog). In his attempts, he deleted the copy of 3.1 that I had on disk. Now I have no SB. Is there a place I can download the old SB 3.1 so I can at least have something?

    Are you having any other programs that give you invalid page faults ?

    Invalid page faults are usually caused by lack of ram, a virutal memory problem, shortage of free disk space, a program attempting to access data that is being modified by another program that is running....etc.

    Are you having this problem when you attempt to install 3.2 or when your trying to run the program after install ?

    I would boot into Safe mode and attempt this install or executing the program and see what happens. Also....if your planning on keeping that puter....50 bucks will get you @ least 4 times the amount of RAM you have now and maybe a cause of your problem.

    You might also consider running msconfig....and temporarily disabling everything under the Startup tab except Explorer....reboot....and then attempt to recreate the problem.
