NO Anti-Virus will install on my computer...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 


I have no idea what happended. I've been using Avast since this new install (about 3 months I guess??) and all of a sudden, it's gone, just like that. Have no idea what happened. Alright, no problem, made sure it wasn't still installed in the "Program Files" directory, and tried reinstalling. It would install, ask me if I wanted a boot scan on next restart, yes, restart, nothing...just boots into windows. Add/Remove programs does not recognize it, so I had to manual delete it. Tried to install AVG, and clamwin, same thing. About to retry clamwin again.

I did go to www.antivirus.com and did an online scan, and it found notyhing but 1 spyware. Any ideas?

Are you sure you are logged on as administrator? It looks like you are being denied the ability to access at least some files on your system by the error you were given.

EDIT: the last line says "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested...", is your hard drive full? Page file turned off?

I am admin....and why would it have suddenly changed?

Ahh, clamwin installed, awesome.

I sill want to know what happened. I want to install either AVG or Avast...as I really don't know Clamwin that well, so I do not know if it's trustworthy....

hmmm, have you tried to run reg cleaner and see what happen?

edit1: have you config your firewall to allow it?
edit2: good reg cleaner would be http://www.ccleaner.com/. I've tried it and it had fix few of the problems i had before when trying to install something.

Have you tried updating to the newest windows installer? I was having problems with windows not letting me install certain things (anti virus, java, etc.) and that fixed it.

Windows update usually fixes many errors like this one.

I can't tell you how many times upgrading the installer or IE saved me at my last job.
