    When I try to install the program, I get the message that
    the file is "not a valid Win32 application." Any
    suggestions?

    Can you post more information about your system and configuration? What
    operating system, service pack, etc.?

    Is this when you try to run the installer or the program itself?

    Either way I'd advise that you clear your browser's cache, download the
    installer again and then run a disk check.

    Then uninstall the program (if it installed) and try installing it again.

    That message means that the program file is corrupted.

    You should redownload it again - That means that the application EXE has
    somehow been corrupted, usually during download.

    there is a malicious piece of software that has disabled all the important pieces of software such as partition magic, zone alarm, true vector services and any installation of antivirus and firewall software. I know that trying to install all these again comes up with the same reponse...is not a valid win32 application, there has got to be a windows file that has been either changed or corrupted....if there is someone out there who knows , what in the registry could cause this...I would like to know.
