While attempting to install Avast on my virgin Win 8.1 system with only Malwarebytes Antimalware Premium installed, I received the following message:

FATAL ERROR  Avast does not trust Avast installer, installation failed.  Have I done something wrong, must I disable my antimalware before attempting the installation? :headscratch:

Hello oldrailroadgeek,

Yes. Try disabling Malwarebytes Antimalware Premium.

Thanks

Zep516,

     I disabled Malwarebytes & installation of Avast went smoothly.  Thanks for your assistance.  These interactive conflicts between security programs sometimes just escape us naive computer operators, but with a resource like G2G and it's knowledgeable volunteers to call on, we are able to make our computers actually do what we bought them for.  Thanks again for your time and assistance
