I uninstalled and reinstalled but the same thing happens,and I have changed nothing in my system. No paches instaled. Please help
"A required security module cannot be activated.
This program cannot be executed (6000)."
"Please have a look at http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=module&c=6000 -for further, more detailed information."
I have the same problem, I don't know what to do either, please help us people!
I fixed it, follow these steps:
More Information : The problem is with CA Pest Patrol. I suspect this is the security update that was loaded by AOL SSC. I need to verify this with AOL.
To fix do the following :
Start -> Settings -> Control Panel
Look for CA Pest Patrol Realtime Protection Services
Double click to open it
Change Startup Type to Disabled and reboot
(Simply stopping it doesn't work)
Be aware that this turns off your spyware protection. You can Enable and start this Service later if you want to go on-line or you can find a freeware spyware protection package you are comfortable with and use that instead.

I recently had this same problem, and tried all the fixes I could find regarding spyware and tried turning off the antivirus software etc.
The fix turned out to be as simple as right-clicking the icon on your game, going to properties and clicking the compatability tab and checking run in compatability mode for Windows 2000.
I don't now how or why this issue started, as the games had operated until one day when they kept giving me that security module error, but this fixed it.
what is this why they developed this game if its not working on PC.i purchased it for 3 times from different shops but the problem is same.
