    I'm running into a roadblock on installation, the rest of the error message is as follows:
    Service 'Eset HTTP Server' (EHttpSrv) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient priveleges to install system services.

    I am 'logged in' in the Administrator account in Windows XP. any suggestions?

    it's home edition v. 2002
    sp2
    amd athlon xp 3200+
    2.2 ghz 448mb ram
    God I find Windows a fruitless challenge.

    you are logged in as adminstrator or your user account has admin priv's? Try right clicking on the installer and choose "run as admin"....

    Hello,

    By any chance, is there (or was there) any other security software installed on your computer? It could be that another program is preventing the service from installing.

    Regards,
