Error ''installation in progress''

Every time i try to download an antivirus such as AVG it always comes up with the message another antivirus installation in in progress. I don't remember ever downloading any other anti-virus. Is there a way I can find out what's in progress and delete it?

    i don't see anything that looks like an antivirus on there.

  • kcastro_joy Dec 19, 2008

    Tried to do that and it gave me an error:



    One care installation cannot continue because another instance of Windows installer is already running on your computer. Please close the other program or restart your computer and then try installing One Care again.

Hi there,

Most laptops come with some sort of antivirus software, even if it's just a trial. Open Task Manager, and click on the Processes tab, have a look down the list and see if you have anything on there that may look like an antivirus, i.e. Norton, Symantecs, McAffee, Avast. I also would have thought that it would be a .exe

So you may just be looking for Setup.exe. Right-click and stop the process and try again.

Hope that helps

    Ok, go to www.onecare.live.com and run the complete Safety Scanner. You may have something left in your registry that doesn't need to be there. This will take a while, as it will scan for virus and mailware/adware, clean your registry, clean any old files you have, and checks the fragmentation of your drives. It's free to use, and as many times as you want. If you are running Vista, you need to click on the beta version.



    Hope this one works

    Yeah, I've had that before. Ran Task Manager, stopped the process, found windows live installer in the add/remove, and removed it. Had to run Windows Defender as well.



    Download Windows Defender and update it. Then restart your system in Safe Mode and run Windows Defender. This scans more files as windows hasn't been loaded.

Hi:
This is a common problem on the AVG site. When this happens, either try to download the program from the link that directly downloads from the AVG site, or go to the CNET site and download it there. If that fails, DOWN load and save the AVG program, go off line, and install it that way. Usually one of these work arounds will get you the free AVG

Make sure you are logged into the system as an Administrator, otherwise the install will fail. It is trying to create a file in a location where the currently logged in user does not have Create or Write permissions.

Help please


This is simply a bad download. You will need to start by completely removing the failed install, otherwise you're going to run into it all over again. Now, did you save the down load or just run it straight from the net? If it was a straight run, you may have encountered a slight internet glitch during the run. What you want to do is save the download to the desktop, then right click on it and run as administrator. It should install properly this way. Another thing is make sure that you don't have any other Antivirus, spyware, or adware programs on the machine. If you do, you will need to remove them, AVG covers them all. The reason you want to remove them is because they perceives the AVG as a threat, especially other Antivirus programs, not a harmful threat, but a competitor threat, and will stop the download or install. Antivirus companies, especially Norton, doesn't like to lose their customers, so they throw in these little blocking programs, in hopes that it will detour you from going to another.
