hello ucakci,

You can read about it in this post:
https://www.nopcommerce.com/boards/t/2857/validation-of-viewstate-mac-failed.aspx

but the short of it is you should add a machinekey to your config file:

Under   <system.web> section add the following:
<trust level="Full" />
<machineKey validationKey='##############'   decryptionKey='##############'   validation='SHA1'/>

Generate the above #### keys using a asp.net key generator on the web.
