Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

When I power up my computer 3 small windows pop up saying ''Zone Alarm Validation failed for C/windows/system 32/VSINIT.dll.You are probably missing a necessary root certificate.'' I can bypass these but the computer then freezes in 10 or 12 minutes. I have tried un-installing Zone Alarm, but the same window pops up and will not allow it.


Answers :

Go to start, run, enter msconfig, and at the startup tab, uncheck the zone alarm program. Restart your computer.
