    When I was trying to install a mailing program yesterday the install stopped with the error that it couldn't access regedit due to missing AUTHZ.DLL.
    I tried it again today with same results. So I went to run and typed regedit and entered and got the error "Missing AUTHZ.DLL".
    I did a Find and nowhere do I have a file AUTHZ.DLL.
    I checked the Windows 98 install disk and it is not there either.
    Does anyone know where I can find the file AUTHZ.DLL and in what folder should it be in?
    Thanks for any help.

    Did you or do you hve a securuty program installed which has the capability of preventing access to various programs? The name authz.dll sounds like authorize. I couldn't find anything on that name in an Internet Search. Please double chsck the dll name.

    Or you may have a virus. Perform an up to date virus scan.
    Here's a link to a free online scan:


    And last but not least, go here and Download Startuplog. Run it. When it opens the results, copy and paste them into a post here.
