    my sister's computer got hung up so she turned it off manually cause there was no other option.

    when it rebooted this error came up. Not sure what it is so I'm asking here

    zpn-1 secu remote internel error

    not sure if that is the 100 percent right wording but that's what she told me...any help would be appreciated

    Might it be this error?

    SecuRemote failed to start due to an internal error

    Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode? Hold F8 while booting.

    sorry...Microsoft XP Home and have no idea if she has SP2 installed or not. I was only able to talk to her once.

    Muzi, the computer started normally besides that error

    Oh, for some reason I presumed it couldn't boot up all the way. Well, I guess if it does that again you could get her to give you the exact message. That would definitely help. ;)

    Maybe "V"pn-1 instead of z? Sounds like something related to SecuRemote VPN Software...she have it on her pc? Could try a reinstall if so.

    If she doesn't I would suspect a trojan/backdoor. :x

    *edit* - eek it does appear that is indeed what it could be (the vpn software anyhoo) ...

    Yeah, I think that is the likely suspect.
