    I have a serious problem to reinstall Antivir 7 Premium beta.
    Every time I run setup a message displays "Please reboot your system before using setup".
    But after rebooting this happens again and again.
    I tried to install Antivir 7 Personal free beta and same thing happens.
    Other installations such those with Windows installer have no problems.

    If any anyone can help...

    Thanks in advance

    Re: AntiVir 7 Premium Open Beta install problems

    Did you uninstall by clicking the setup.exe in the antivir program folder originally? ,because some earlier betas does not show in add/remove programs , and you have to click setup again to get the uninstall/repair option.If you manually deleted then maybe theres some corruption.If you installed to normal default directories you could copy and paste the uninstallstring in start>run and see if that works..

    C:\Program Files\AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium\SETUP.EXE /REMOVE

    The problem may be something else , but worth a check first.

    Re: AntiVir 7 Premium Open Beta install problems

    I had no problems to uninstall Antivir from Add/remove programs and I remember that there were no files left after uninstallation at Antivir directory.
    My problem is that I can not reinstall it again, just after two days.
    The problem occurs just after extracting SFX and run setup.exe.

    All i can suggest is to try a good regcleaner , and also check windows>application data>antivir personal edition premium and see if the folder or any remnants are left there too.Im using 98 by the way so i am assuming the path is the same ,but you,ll have to check.

    There's a reboot.txt located somewhere in your application data directory (i think it was application data).... just delete it and you'll be fine.

    I think you mean
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
    PendingFileRenameOperations
    I had that in mind but it does not work.

    Thanks

    There must be a zero byte length file called "reboot.txt", simply delete that. It is not a registry key.

    The file "reboot.txt" does not exist anywhere on disk for sure.
    It happened once and this file appeared, I think the first time but the deletion did not solve the problem.

    Can I do anything else as I have a backup of the Antivir App directory and the Antivir Settings directory that were previously installed?

    Regards

    I noticed a large update today .Is the heuristics engine 2 part and parcel of the "final" build today and out of beta?

    Thanks IBK.
    The new installer WORKS!
    So finally I am sure that it was a bug in Antivir 7 beta Installer.
    Waiting for the final English version.
    Until then, maybe I will install Antivir 6.0 or I will go back to Kaspersky.

    Here we are again.

    I have downloaded the last version of Antivir PersonalEdition Premium 7, which now is the final (build 103 25/01/2006).
    I had no problems with the installation, everything works fine, except again...

    when trying to update, this message appears and stops the task

    "the last update requires a restart of your computer" ...

    ... when restarting the same again ...

    :mad: :mad: :mad:
