Hey Geeks,

I can't get my anti-virsus software to run, re-install, or unistall. Plus my windows auto update for flash media won't install(but I fixed this by going directly to website and downloading update on my desktop). They may be connected. But my primary concern is getting virsus protection back up and running.

My Machine
1. XP Home 2002 Service Pack 2.
2. AVG 7.5 free edition build 432 (not working).
3. No other antivirus software installed.
4. No other protection software installed.
5. Error msg given during installation/uninstallation
6. Standard windows firewall turned on

Here is what the error message is (happens whenever I try to use AVG):
"Local machine: installation failed
Initialization:
Error: Checking of state of the item file avgset.dll failed.
File opening failed. %FILE% = "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\avgset.dll"
Permission denied"



I have tried running the following programs(not in this order, and I don't remember the :whistling: exact order):
1. CCleaner
2. AVG AntiSpyware
3. Super anti spyware
4. CWShredder
5. SpyBot
6. Ad-aware



I have also followed the instruction provided in the HJT and the Malware forum. Do any of the following logs help???

Thanks, oOps

Here are the logs:

1. Hijackthis
2. Hijackthis (uninstall_list.txt)
3. Activescan.txt

Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?

If not, then can someone help me erase all the files in the AVG FREE folder? It won't uninstall, so maybe I could erase them one by one manually?


Thanks,
