    Problem with a game


    I have membership to Shockwave Unlimited. There is a game that I have played on this computer for a long time called Plants vs Zombies. The game was opened and played yesterday afternoon for an hour or so. Today when my grandson tried to open it he got a window that said this was not a valid win32 application. I tried several things and kept getting the same window. I used Revo to uninstall the game, then went to Shockwave to download it and re-install, but I'm still getting the same thing.

    Does anyone know what is causing this? Your help would be greatly appreciated. This is a favorite game and I can't understand what would have happened out of the blue to cause this. I have tried several other Shockwave games and they are working fine.

    This problem had to do with my anti malware. It is solved now.

    Thank you for answering.

    Great. I just noticed that no one had responded so I thought I would ask.
