    I had to uninstall Abtrusion Protector by backing up to a restore point. I
    d/l it from Majorgeeks, and it seemed like an excellent idea.

    Unfortunately, everytime I tried to install new software I received a
    message "This is not a valid Win32 application". After uninstalling
    Abtrusion Protector I've been able to install the same software without any
    problems.

    When you are in trouble, you should -»always«- try to do
    some research and in the way develop persistency skills.
    It took me 1 minute:

    I am not bragging or patronizing, I am only trying to show
    you that there are answers out there and that you should
    always thrive to get them. I am also trying to show to other
    persons that, contrary to what your frivolous post imply
    this is a good software package, free for the home user,
    very useful and it can put an extra layer of security
    between us and the bad guys out there.

    Its good that you are not bragging or patronizing, because the information
    in the AP FAQ does not recognize or answer the question. The same error
    "This is not a valid Win32 Application" appeared even when AP was "turned
    off", meaning that anything could be installed no matter how bogus it was.
    It would not even allow software with permission from Macromedia (one of the
    companies it recognizes automatically as 'trustworthy') to install.

    The problem vanished at the same time that AP did by my using System
    Restore. Yes, AP does have bugs. I love the idea. Its somewhat useless
    though if you cannot install your new copy of Dreamworks because of AP.
