I have an XPS M2010 runiing Windows XP Pro, Service Pack 3.
Security wise, I have Windows Firewall, Zone Alarm Security Suite and Force Field.
I run many applications, but one in particular refuses to function, I think since my computer last made some automatic windows updates.
What happens is that the one piece of software will not run when I click it. It is the register.exe file and the application file itself that will not run. Other functions such as the update.exe file still work no problem. I have had this piece of software for a few years and have used it most days, so it is extremely bizarre that it now will not run. I have had many mails with the owner of the software and he is at a loss as to what may be the problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software many times, including previous versions, all to no avail. I have cleared the registry files, and tried accesing the software direct fro the C drive as well as through 'Start-Programs' or the desktop shortcut. I have the same software on a mini travel pc that I use, and it runs fine on that machine.
The above makes me think that it is some sort of security blocking issue, but I have no clue what that could be. I have disabled Windows Firewall, Force Filed and Zone Alarm, but still the software does not run. I guess that therefore one of the latest Microsoft updates has triggered something that is refusing to let the software run. However, I cannot tracfk down what that could be. Could anyone offer some advice, please?
Thank you and best regards,
