:tazz: Hi guys!

May be in the wrong forum here - if so apologies! Hope someone can give me a bit of guidance on this one.

My parents in law have an old PC running Windows ME and AOL. Through work my other half is allowed to distribute copies of Mcafee, fully licensed and legally, to friends and family as part of a deal they offer.

We have the Mcafee installation disk, but when we try and run setup.exe we get a message saying that an error has been generated in msvcrt.dll and so the setup cannot be run.

Basic research has indicated that AOL probably modified msvcrt.dll when installed and this may be causing the problem, but I don't know how to fix it!

Any ideas?

Cheers!

msvcrt.dll is a system file, so you will have to replace the file if you want to install the software. You are probably right about the AOL modification.

In the future, install the security software prior to installing the ISP. This can assure that your system files are safe, and it gives you protection before you ever even surf the web.

I hope ive been helpful to you
