Hi Taurus76, :)

Download the attached .bat file and save it to your Desktop. Right-click on it and choose Run as administrator and it will create a .txt file in C drive. Post the contents of the file C:\CheckUp.txt.

Another strange thing I just noticed: the Google Chrome shortcut was missing from my desktop. I had to access it via the Start menu. Anyway, here is the log:

While removing the registry key it may have removed the shortcut.

Can you perform an IE reset and try downloading? I doubt it will work but it worth a try after the registry fix.

Step 1.

Download AppRemover from here to your desktop.

Double click and run AppRemover.
Click Next
Select Remove Security Application
Click Next (It is now scanning for security applications) Note: This step can take some time as it searches.
When the scan finishes click Next
Click on any application it finds and remove it. This will involve a reboot, so reboot when instructed to reboot.

Repeat these steps for additional applications until this list is empty.


Step 2.

Double click and run AppRemover.
Click Next
Select Clean Up a Failed Uninstall
Click Continue (It is now scanning for security application fragments) Note: This step can take a long time as it searches.
When the scan finishes click Next
Click on any application(s) it finds and remove it(them). This will involve a reboot, so reboot when instructed to reboot.

 

Download the attached .bat file, Right-click and Run as administrator. Post the log in C:\RegCheck.txt

Thanks again!

I was unable to carry out Step 2. It did not give me any option to clean a failed install - it just told me it could not find anything to uninstall.

Here is the log that you requested:

Sadly I am getting the same error message!

I don't want to waste any more of your time with this. If you want to give up please feel free. (If you want to carry on for your own research or whatever, please also feel free!)

I know this is frustrating and I do not wish to keep you here with this issue as well. I consulted with my teachers and we are doing the best we could to rectify the issue.

If you want to give up please feel free. (If you want to carry on for your own research or whatever, please also feel free!)

Every user is a learning experience. Every machine is unique and you can always discontinue if you wish since we have disinfected your machine which was the prime concern of your thread. Try the repair tool here and see if it changes anything.

Just a little query, you are using your main administrative account, right? Can you create a new user account and try to download with IE from there?
