    Default failed to start boot sector and memory scan - but installation success

    hi

    after having re-installed ZA (had had za running properly, with xp sp2, but installed with the above warning) - after update xp to sp3, all related udates done, adjusted few progs to new version, (secunia), all these steps with reboots,checks,cleaned, etc. re-uninstalled za for a last check, re-checked (appremoval), re-cleaned (ccleaner), cleaned (ZAremovaltool), restart, set off windows security firewall and antivirus, and installed za.
    but the warning came back.
    no event noted in event-viewer (just notices all components successfully installed)
    then updates downoaded successfully

    and za works fine !

    so it seems to be a minor issue ?

    thank you for your support !

    This error is normally linked to a problem in the boot sectors of the OS. Its better you address to dedicated support forums for trying to fix the boot sector (MBR) like this one:

    The origin of the damage could be related to malware or simply corruption.
