The bottom one is the correct one. Now you need to post the contents of that file so it can be read.

You mean like this?
ChrisW Jul 1, 2013 @ 12:10pm 
Yes. Since it crashed, you should also post the contents of any matching .rpt file which contains information about the crash.

Uninstall ZoneAlarm.
Brock Jul 1, 2013 @ 1:18pm 
My brother had the same problem. It was caused by having an old version of ZoneAlarm. Updating the program fixed it.
