  • “Validation failed for C:WINNT\system32\VSINIT.DLL”

    Hi,

    I have two users who are receiving the message “Validation failed for C:WINNT\system32\VSINIT.DLL” after performing a recent Windows 2000 Pro update.

    Clicking on OK brings up a window that says:

    “Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability Windows must restore the original versions of these files. Insert your Window 2000 Professional CD now.”

    I’ve tried both Windows Pro SP2 and SP3, but the system doesn’t seem to like them. The only thing I can find relating to this issue has to do with Zone Alarm but that software is not installed on their machines. I also tried replacing the DLL and reregistering but still no fix.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!
