I have a problem installing winzip

Asked By 1040 points N/A Posted on -

Hello guys,

When I was  installing  a third party software to our office application, I meet this error WinZip_Data_Module is missing ~Error: {2A0DCCF6}, shown below is the screen shot.

WinZip_Data_Module is missing ~Error: {2A0DCCF6}

I meet this error when I run the application installer, that uses winzip as its extractor. This is the first time I meet such error.

I first restarted my computer, to get a fresh start, after which I tried again installing the application, but same error message was displayed.

I asked for another copy of the installer and  installed it again,  I still meet same error.

I don't know now where this error originated.

Please help me solve my issue.

The problem you are facing is not due to any application problem or any such matter but this is a worm that you have installed on your system.

It may look like there is an error so the worm has not infected your system but instead this message is to trick users to think that the work is not active or damaged.

This worm leads to increase in network traffic and is usually transmitted through E-mails.

Scan your computer with a good antivirus and download the application from another verified source.
