    JC et al --

    I keep trying install SpywareBlaster on this old WinNT4 box and I get an automatic shutdown and reboot if I try to run the program. Is it this machine, or is that standard? Thanks guys.

    I assume the account you are running the installer on has full administrator privileges?

    I haven't heard of any problems running either the installer or SpywareBlaster itself on Windows NT 4 up to now - so this might just be your machine... o_O

    Just to verify, you might try installing the latest support files:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/vb60pro/Redist/sp5/WIN98Me/EN-US/vbrun60sp5.exe

    and

    http://www.javacoolsoftware.net/downloads/missingfilesetup.exe

    Let me know if that fixes the problem - thanks!

    Best regards,

    I downloaded and installed them both. No go.

    I double-click the .exe file and that initial warning message box appears. Once I click OK -- bam! Immediate shut down and Restart.

    I'll probably never figure it out. It's on a server and the office is getting tired of me crashing their server! ;0]
