Here's a strange one. This morning, on startup, I get a message that validation has failed for two files:
Both used by Zone Alarm and both suggesting "You are probably missing a necessary root certificate".
So, I've done my research and done the following:
Scanned with NOD32 and MalwareBytes. All clean.
Reset the root certificates at https://getca.verisign.com/
Downloaded and run rootsupd.exe
Cleared all temp files.
Defragmented 'C' drive.
Nothing has made any difference.
Then my wife turned on the laptop, and it's doing the same thing!
There hasn't been any updates to either computer, with the exception of NOD32.
The only other common factor is the router - so I rebooted it (I'll try anything).
The only 'fix' is from Zone Labs, and that means removing and reinstalling ZA. I don't think that's the answer though, not when both machines have shown the same problem at the same time.
So - has anybody else had problems? Especially if you have NOD32 alongside Zone Alarm.
