Type services.msc in the RUN box on the start menu, and check to see that the window installer service is running, MSInstaller.svc, if it is disabled, or the PC is in safe mode, you won't be able to install, if the service is stopped try to start it and set startup type to auto. Many Viruses will also disable this service to prevent AV updates, or program installs that may remove the infection. Also are you using the correct version for your OS, (32bit vs64bit, Windows vs.Mac) if not download correct version and try again. If this helps or points you in the right direction, a fixya rating would be great, if not if It is helpful please rate appropriately. Thanks for the question

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

Unable to download vista service pack 2 from website. As soon as i click enter system shutdowns What should i do? As i using Genuine Vista premium edition


The first thing you might try is if you have auto-updates on for Windows, turn it off. Start>control panel> and either security center (WinXP) or Windows Updates, if you're running Vista. In the windows update window, in the left menu is a selection called 'Change Settings'. Click on this to turn updates off and on and to control how updates are handled.

Is your system shutting down only then? You may have a virus or other nasty. If you have an antivirus program installed please update the definitions and run a virus scan. If you don't have a current antivirus program installed download Antivir here . After you download it drop the download window into your task bar by select the _ in the upper right corner of the window. If you have another antivirus installed but the subscription has run out and you can no longer update it, remove it by going to start>control panel>add/remove programs (XP) or Programs and Features in Vista. Allow the list to populate and then uninstall the antivirus program. Also, in Vista you must disable 'Windows Defender' before installing Antivir. Start>control panel>Windows Defender> and scroll down to where it says, "use Windows Defender". Deselect that setting and that should turn it off. At any rate Antivir will alert you that's Defender is on and will give you instructions as to how to disable it. Upon successful install of Antivir it will automatically update the virus definitions and then initiate a virus scan.

You can also download and install Malwarebytes and run a quick scan. Malwarbytes can be found here: http://filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/

Once you've installed the program it should automatically launch and then do a database update. If it doesn't update on the tabs the third tab is 'update'. You can manually update the database from there. This program is pretty intuitive and easy to use. Just do a quick scan which is selected by default. You will probably have to let the program reboot to clean anything it's found at load up of the system.

Please let me know if this helps. If not we can try to find another solution.

Uninstalling problem of antivirus software


First.. install a different antivirus program while you are fixing this installation. Try microsoft security essentials or AVG.
Then.
Check your program files folder for any mention of Avast, and delete it.
Run a search for avast and delete anything you find.
Download a registry cleaner, I use CC Cleaner.
Run the cleaner and remove all the files it finds, run the registry cleaner and let it delete all the problems it finds .
IF you want to try with avast again, uninstall the other antivirus program you may have installed. then try with the Avast again

Not display all icone


If you try safe mode, the restart and still have the problem, insert the original Operating System Disk, and start the process to reinstall the operating system. However, when you get to a window that offers you to press "R" to repair the OS (after it finds windows), press R and do the install. You won't lose anything, but you'll need to update your system again.

Chances are, you've gotten a virus or a Malware on your system that has caused this problem.

Download the free version of Malwarebytes (not a fake, but the real one) and also Vipre Rescue from Sunbelt Software, and run it. Then get Vipre antivirus/antispyware (just $29.95 a year) and install it.

Also, get a good registry cleaner - I recommend CleanMyPC Registry cleaner.
