    I have downloaded the latest version, and every time I attempt to install it, I get to the first screen that prompts me to click "Next", and then the installation dialog disappears. It seems like something is intentionally shutting down the installation.

    I have Symantec Antivirus installed and it appears to be working properly. I have Windows Defender installed, and it also appears to be working properly. In fact, I did a Full Scan, and Defender found two nasties and it also found the remanants of a keylogger that I was testing several months ago buried in a System Restore volume. But even after removing the two spywares that Defender found (Win Zapper and Dead Pool), I still cannot install ewido.

    I also tried downloading and installing Spybot Search & Destroy, and it does the same thing as the Ewido install. I get to the screen where I agree to the terms and conditions, and wham! the install closes.

    Your computer seems to be infected and this is somehow preventing the installation of Ewido .

    I recommend you download , install , update and use to scan/clean :

    Ad-Aware SE Personal

    SpyBot Search and Destroy

    Ewido Micro

    These are all free and excellent antispyware applcations . Ewido Micro is the free variant in Micro scanner , using Ewido's definition but doesn't have to be installed . After you scan with all these ,also scan with Windows Defender. Remove all the infections found .

    Make sure your Symantec Antivirus is updated and configured well . Perform full scan/clean and remove the infections .

    It would be a great idea to scan in Safe Mode
