I'm using an HP Pavilion 8750C with Win 98 SE and I got this message
today when I downloaded the program Zone Alarm:-

" Validation failed for C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\VSINIT.DLL You are probably
missing a necessary root certificate "

I'm not a computer whiz but I did a search for the file and it _is_
on my C drive.

This came after I had reformatted and reinstalled 98 using the
'official' HP
'system recovery' disks.

I would appreciate it if someone could advise me how to proceed from
here.

Thanks.

Lewis.
