I attempted to install Panda IS 2009; however I didn't see the instruction to uninstall other programs first. Now it doesn't get past the message "Failed Installation Detected". Is there any way to fix this?

Hello,

Do you have an active anti virus running now? If so you cannot run 2 anti vurus together, well you can technically but you will have problems with system freezes. If so, uninstall the old version and then try the install again.

    No problem,



    Go to windows explorer and make sure show hidden files and folders is checked(tools, folder options, view) then click on documents and settings, then look for a folder named application data, once you are in this folder look for any folder with the name of the antivirus you previously uninstalled. Delete any folders that are related to your old anti virus, once you do this try installing Panda 2009 again, should work.



    Please let me know.

Removing fliptoast from the program list doesn't get rid of it. It continues to appear on the top of most programs I run. How can I totally shred this little ******?


Hi Llewellyn,

Did you delete the program from your programs folder or did you uninstall it through 'add/remove programs' in your control panel. Simply deleting it from your list of program files will not uninstall the program.
Deleting installed programs could also corrupt your windows installation.

Best wishes,

Windows Restore only displays one restore date; history is gone.


Restores are only recorded when a system change is made or you manually set one. Since panda is a program and not a system change it will not set a restore date. Uninstall panda. Go to c:\program files and delete Panda Software folder. In Vista go to C:\Users\<user>\AppData\ (where user is your user account) and delete all folders related to panda. In XP that same folder will be C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data

Unable to load Roxio Creator 2009. Message says 'wizard was interrupted, your system has not been modified'. My operating system in Vista Home Premium.


During the installation of DirectX 9 portions of Creator 2009, the installation halts, it perhaps tries to roll back, gives an error....wizard was interrupted ... and cannot be completed.

Resolution
Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista users) from your Start menu.

Go to C: drive -> Windows folder -> System32 folder.

Look for a file called dsetup.dll in the System32 folder.

Rename the file to "dsetupOLD.dll" or delete the file.

Reinstall Creator 2009 and follow the on-screen instructions.

It helped some..

I renewed Panda improperly. I have now uninstalled. How do I get it back. I've already paid for the year 2009.


First call Panda and get your money back. The use the Free AVG or buy the Pro version. AVG is excellent.

My panda software says the download was not completed because the username and password are for a different product. what do i have to do to uninstall it or fix the problem. also my e-mail address has...


Go into control panel and go to and remove Icon and find the panda application and delete it. Reinstall from Panda website and they will have current down load for you. If things are changing on your machines, check to see if you have an emotions program installed. This is like a trojan horse and will mess up your machine alot.
