Hi Regina, thanks for answering
The compressed file that i was talking about was the postgis installation
executable (i just asked 7zip to unzip it and it worked)
I tried installing a newer version too (9.2 + postgis 2.0.1), but that
I also tried the binaries that you suggested, but that doesn't help either.
Postgis 1.4 is the latest version that was installed successfully on this
PC. It was deinstalled before i installed this newer version.
1) i rebooted but that doesn't help
2) that's service Pack 3
3) The virus software is called "Symantec Endpoint Protection"
