    Having installed SpywareBlaster 3.2 effectively on my PC (Win XP sp2 1.8Ghz) I am attempting to put it on my brother's older PC (Win ME 200Mhz). However when I have downloaded it and installed it - when it starts up after installation it says the program is corrupt and that either there is an error on that part of the drive or it has a virus and that I should reinstall.
    I have run a thorough disc scan and there are no surface errors and I have downloaded Spywareblaster from a couple of sources but the same things happens when I try to run the program after installation. Any ideas?

    Hi hoggle2000. :)

    Welcome to Wilders.

    To clarify, is this the exact message,

    This program has been damaged, possibly by a bad sector of the hard drive or a virus. Please reinstall it

    if not, please let us know, the specific alert.

    Hey Snowbound!
    Yes that is the exact alert as you wrote it.

    Hmm I have read of a CoolWebsearch infection causing this. I have Ad-Aware, Spybot and have got Hijack this. Maybe I need to post a log somewhere for inspection.
