    It would really help if you post the content of the message you see when you try to install.

    I take it when you say 'try to install it' you mean AVG and not your new choice.

    I'm really sorry for that. Yes I can't get Avg Antispyware to install. I am running XP Pro Media Edition.

    Just thought I would report back that I have the problem fixed and here is how I fixed it:downloaded and saved setup file to desktop and I then restarted and went to safe mode and run the setup and it installed fine. Everything is working great. Hope maybe this will help someone else out with a similar problem!!:eek:

    Hello kitagal55,

    thank you for your report we are glad the issue is solved now. Regarding the installation error could you please verify following settings of the installation package ?

    - right click on the AVG installation package
    - choose the Properties item from the menu that will appear
    - go to the Compatibility tab
    - check if there is the compatibility option enabled - if so, please
    unmark this option and confirm by OK button
    - the installation should now succeed in the "normal" mode

    Thank you

    Best regards,

    Ondrej Novotny
