Hello.
I'm downloading a a program, that i no is legit..
it Dwnloads as an .exe, i downloaded and installed it once.
After Disabling my Anti virus, because this program so happens to be a key logger (Dw, it's not to reack havock it's for [bleep]'s n giggles)

The program installed correctly, and was functional.
Then half of the program went missing and it started to bug a lil bit, nothing to serious.
I decided to uninstall the program and re install it.

I went to find the .exe and it wasnt their.
I went back to the website, redownloaded the .exe and when it started to copy over it says like usual,
You need administrative privilages to copy this file.
I press continue, and it comes up as failed, with three options Retry, Ignor, Cancell.
And from their i cannot copy, i have to cancell the download.

I've done a full Chkdsk to see if NTFS was corrupt.
The File Cannot be copied anywhere! Portable Hard-drive, C:, D: thumbdrive.
The File cannot be extracted from a .rar (This was from a different website)

I turned off all anti virus, firewalls and vistas UAV or wotever it's called.

I'm running 64bit Vista.


i have uploaded two Picture's of what im trying to explain.

The program ithat im trying to download is called: Ardamax 2.8

I have administrative privilages, i've checked in Local Groups/Administrator's that my account is in the Admin group
i have full priviligies :)

The first thing I would do is go into your Temp directory (Start - Run - %temp%), then delete all of the files in there. It could be that the file that is already in the directory is blocking the download of the current file. Once done deleting the file, I would then try and re-run the install.

Hey, yeah i was logged on as Administrator.
Sorry, my bad. Stupid Mistake by me.

I forgot that mcafee runs as a service, so even tho i just exted the program, it's still going to block bad applications.

I found it in the Quartine List, haahah. Along with the Hundreds' of .exe that i tried to redownload.

I just Disabled Systems Guard and everythings better now

Haha, thanks Jeff for the help :)
Problems all fixed now.
