    Can't install MSE

    I get an error message: " mseinstall.exe is not a valid Win 32 Application "

    Does this mean my valid copy of XP is failing verification and thereby won't allow the install?

    Running-
    XP Pro SP3
    3.4 gig Pent 4
    1 gig ram

    thx in advance, chumly

    Welcome to the Lounge!!

    It most likely means the MSE download was corrupted. Try the download again.

    Joe, must have been a crappy link as the one you sent works fine. Am in the process of loading MSE now, will update you when the job is done. Thx again

    Joe--, Read the article about MSE conflicts with Anti- virus and firewalls. Am running AVG, Malware Bytes and Commodo firewall where most said there was no conflict so I am completing the MSE setup without uninstalling them. Think I will be ok?

    MSE is updating and scanning now. So far so good.

    MSE is not a firewall so it should not affect Commodo. You should never run two anti-malware products that will attempt to perform real time scans at the same time. That is a recipe for disaster. I would not have both MSE & AVG performing real time scanning.

    OK, what do you think? Disable AVG or MSE real time scans?

    I don't think I get real time scans in the AVG free edition. True?

    Yes, you do get on access file scans (i.e. real time) with AVG. I don't have AVG installed anywhere anymore so I can't comment about which I'd disable.

    Don't see a way to disable access file scans on the user interface. Anybody? Did not seem to cause any problems on the initial quick scan.

    Hi, as Joe suggested it's not a good idea to run multiple AV's. I've been using MSE on 3 home comps quite satisfactorily and can only suggest you remove AVG (unless you paid for it) and settle for MSE.
    If you continue to run both - you will eventually have major problems and will have to do a fresh install of your OS.
    Over the years I have tried AVG, Norton, McAfee, Avira and Avast and found Avast to be the least obtrusive. So far I'm quite happy with MSE. Cheers.

    I have been running MSE with ZA Free for 6 months on my XP machine with no problems that I can see, except for the occasional non-startup of ZA's Anti-Phishing function.
