Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but...

I'm having some problems with AntiVir and AVG on one of the computers I'm troubleshooting in a VERY troubled office.

I can't install AVG. When I attempt to, after a certain point, it stops and gives me this error:

Local machine: installation failed
Installation:
Error: Action failed for registry key
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run: creating
registry key....
Access is denied. (5)


So, I installed AntiVir instead. However, mid-scan, the scan stops. The scan result displayed is: Scan was terminated nominally.

The following is the log from the scan:

Well I assume that using AntiVir Personal in an office environment would be a breach of their TOS, since they kindly offer a paid for Business solution. But that doesn't help to deal with your problem, except that your probably using the wrong tools for the job!

Perhaps a previous sysadmin has placed controls on some system files or else there may be another anti-virus/malware application running in the background which may be denying access to protected files.

Please read this thread for more info and advice on the best software to use. If you are still having problems after that then i suggest you visit this section of the forum, where an expert volunteer will be happy to help you out.

Please be sure to read the forum rules before posting in that section as it will greatly increase your chances of a quick response.

I agree with Post #2. What AVG version are you using? If you're using AVG FREE it's likely to fail at installation since it's not intended for businesses. I suspect it's the same issue with AntiVir. :tazz:

Oh yeah, that completely slipped my mind FKG! cheers for pointing that out.

You should find plenty of tools in the forum linked above which are freely useable in any situation. Indeed, you can click the links for Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy within FreddieKrugerGuy's signature and those two alone, when used properly, should help out your problem a great deal.

Yes, but only with spyware/adware issues. It's best to have an AntiVirus program to remove viruses, altough spyware is much more common these days. :)

You should download the programs that BaggyBoy pointed out. It will protect you against a great deal of malicious software. :tazz:
