Are you logged in as an administrator on your PC? Access Denied is almost always an indicator that the current logged in user does not have sufficient permissions to install applications. Let us know if this is not the case. Hope this helps!

C Drive Access Denied and The Parameter is Incorrect


I found this on a Vista Forum: Re: Access to C Drive
I figured it out -- you have to take ownership of the drive away from
the "TRusted Installer" account, which can be used only by Windows, and
assign it to one of your administrator accounts. AVG did this! So now your C: drive can be accessed by "Trusted Installer" and not you. You are an Administrator so you need to go to permissions and assign the C: drive to you and NOT the "Trusted Installer"

Avg 8 removal problem....


hi iam sharu
The recommended procedure is a time consuming one. You must download the latest version of AVG from the website, and then run it.

1) Click on the following link and download AVG to your desktop

http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/us/frt/0

2) Double-click on the downloaded file to run it
3) AVG will present you with three options to choose from. Choose the Uninstall option to completely uninstall AVG

Add/Remove Components - choose if you want to add/remove some components or reinstall the entire AVG program
Repair installation - this option repairs or reinstalls missing or damaged components of AVG
Uninstall - this option removes the AVG program from your PC

4) Once the uninstall has completed, restart your computer. You can then proceed to install another antivirus or install AVG again.

D,f drives "access is denied" on double click. but opens when rt clk and 'open'


What OS you're using?
Are you having Admin rights on the system you're trying to access the e&f drives?

If you have admin rights, then try to look at the security options of the drive (Right click on the drive and check properties). Make sure that your login name / your group is listed with full permissions.

Windows XP home edition service pack 3


OK, do you wish to install further updates? if you dont, then what you can do is disable automatic updates

To do this, then right click on the desktop the icon My pc and select properties. The sub menu Automatic Updates you will find on the top, click that and check the box disable automatic updates

Some Automatic updates are dangerous and can cause your computer to stop working correctly. I would recommend you disable them. Once this is disabled, restart your computer and the access denied messages will disappear. This is because its most likely you have automatic updates set to download and install automatically. But once you disable this, problem should be solved.

If you have any more questions, please let me know

Are you running AVG 8 free anti Virus? Did you install it recently? There are some reports that AVG 8 free version has some issues causing this to happen with VISTA. If so try printing with AVG turned off (Careful where you go on the internet while it is off - suggest a trusted site like microsoft)

Then try with AVG running and disable IE7 protected mode,

Click Tools, then click Internet Options.

  1. Click the Security tab.
  2. To disable Protected Mode uncheck the box next to Enable Protected Mode to disable it.
  3. Click OK.
Note: Enabling or disabling protected mode requires Internet Explorer to be restarted

If it is AVG causing the issue perhaps try and see if they have a later version available as it is not recommended to run with protected mode disabled

Upgrading to AVG 8 from the 7.5 purchased version


Hi Collin there are several likely possibilities:

1) AVG keeps an extensive black lists of compromised
serial numbers.

These are numbers that have been published on the internet,
or numbers that have been associated with too many different
IP addresses during the download of automatic updates.

If a black listed serial number is detected during the daily
update sequence, Grisoft will send you a Trojan update
which disables your product.

2) A black listed serial number from the original installation,
may also propagate to any updates installed over the
top of it.

3) Also, AVG has become the target of many viruses, root kits
and Trojans that have found a way to hack it, remove it and
even prevent it from being re-installed, including many
"beagle" varieties.

4) AVG will not detect nor identify these viruses, even if you
manually find and scan the file.

AVG will however identify many false positives, as well as
most key generators designed to crack it (AVG).

5) The first thing you can do is contact AVG and complain
loudly in Czech or English. Their head office (Grisoft)
is in Brno in the Czech Republic.

6) Scan your machine with another product (!!!), including:

Rootkit Revealer (Free from Winternals/Mark Russinowich)
Black light (Trial ware from F-Secure)
Kaspersky
McAfee
Norton
etc.

I have had my AVG installation hacked by malware at least
a dozen times in the last year, so I no longer trust it. I still
use it, but I use a multitude of other products ad well.

Use only well known and reputable (brand name) products,
beware of hundreds of ROGUE scanners out there that are
themselves viruses and try to milk you for money.

7) Keep in mind that NO anti-malware product detects
everything, not even close, so you are fighting a loosing
battle.

8) Once you are reasonably confident that your machine is
clean, by using other products, totally remove AVG and
re-install it.

Isn't it ironic that you have to clean your machine BEFORE
you can install the ANTIVIRUS ?!!!


9) If you can't get your legit serial to work, do what all honest
angry customers do.

Go to a crack site, get yourself a bogus serial or a key
generator (check it for viruses with another product, not
AVG), Install AVG plus the current updates, before number
gets black-listed, and then DISABLE the automatic updates
in AVG as well as the Windows Scheduler Service.

BTW. Keep your key generator on a CD, because AVG
may detect it as a virus, and try to destroy it.

Martin


PS
If your software is legit, but the serial does NOT work, then:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
www.mscracks.com used to be the best site for serials,
but their domain name expired about a week ago, so I don't
know what gives.

crackspider is another one.
also try: Pirate Bay

Always disable scripts in your Firefox, before
visiting these sites, some may try to hack your
computer.
