Antivir Personal 10 installation error
There are two solutions here. Try doing the simple one first which is to download the installer extract's zip version and run the setup.exe. If it works, very well. If not go tot he next solution below.
The next solution aims to fix the problem from your system. Normally, it is your system that is preventing the installation of your Avira Antivir. To resolve this you need to install the program Hyjackthis. Here's how:
1. First download it from the net. It should be easily searchable.
2. When you have downloaded it, do not run it from your Temporary Internet folder. Go instead directly to the directory where you saved HiJackThis.exe and double click on it to run the program.
3. Save a log file by clicking the "Main" menu button and do a system scan.
4. The file named "hijackthis.log" will open automatically in Windows notepad. It should work well at this point.
