    So... tried twice to install this app today: error msg was about, oddly, that it did create a log txt file but then it could not open agent.exe and so, it did not run.

    DL'd file again, and it's the same size, to double check this: app said it could not checksum a particular .sys file, and that was end of it, and the app closed. Poof/gone/end of story.

    Ideas on what may've happened here, and/or how to fix it? Would like to at least look at app, try it, perhaps buy it.

    Thanks, SG1 (Pat)

    Notok;

    Thought I'd "got by" PG and Online Armour in approved fashion, but yes, thanks - you make a good point where I may've erred when installing Prevx1. Will try again with all security apps off, tho' it seems with PG off it still leaps into the fray when installing apps: but, that may not be a bad thing altogether, really.

    Thanks, SG1 (Pat)
