I am a rookie with octave and would like to use to create a program to do elementary mathematical and linear algebra calculations but am having problems setting up the startup files.
I have a windows vista business 21 bits os and downloaded a Octave 3.24 version software.

After several unsuccessful attempts at setting up the startup files, my octave 3.24 will not even start properly giving an error on the initial prompt when I try to run it.

I have not been able to uninstall the program on my windows control panel nor been able to download a new version because my window defender rejects the download attempts.

Could anyone suggest how I should proceed?

first question, if you're just starting this now why did you choose an out of date version of the software?  Latest version for Windows is 3.6.4 and can be found here:

For this version, you should just be able to create a C:/Octave folder, unzip both the program and package file to that folder, and double click the shortcuts that appear in that folder to run Octave. Note 1: there is a readme.txt file in that folder explaining how to set up the packages the first time you run Octave.  Note 2: the files use the 7Zip compression format. if you don't have a program to work with this you can get it from

Now, regarding the previous installation and how to install it, i'm not certain as I'm not familiar with the version 3.2.4 installer and how much more it did than just decompress the program files.
