Verify that you have access to that directory

Hi, again. I ran McAfee removal tool twice, The program after cleaning said: "Error obtaining full perrmision for cleanup. some products may not be fully removed." After restarting and runnung it second time and restarting again, I got same message with an error and I ran RegCure. The pop ups are gone, but when I want to install any program like NOD32, or so, the installations stops in the middle and brings the message that it can not install to Program Files... and "Verify that you have access to that directory". What kind of access I need to have? I never needed it before.

    You are rightm I was getting a message ich time I would try to do something in the Program Files to prove that I have a perrmission to anything there. But I never changed anything with any perrmission on my laptop. It happened after I got a problem trying to install an Antivirus after deleting McAfee.

    How can I fix the problem? I mean where I have to go to uncheck the permission? I don't use it under Administrator.

McAfee Integrated Security Platform Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Not only Uninstalling & Reinstalling the McAfee Program would help, because usually you'd get this Error During the Installation. The Reason for this Error is because of the Windows Update (McAfee is Disigned on the Windows Platform).

Things that Needs to be checked here are:

1. Update Windows:
- Open IE (Internet Explorer).
- Click on the TOOLS or SAFETY (If the IE version is IE v.8).
- Select Windows Update.
- Ensure that All Windows Updates are Installed on the Computer.

2. Installing MSXML 3 & 4:
- Check if you already have MSXMLs installed on your Computer by going to START >> CONTROL PANEL >> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS or PROGRAMS >> PROGRAMS & FEATURES (In Case of Windows Vista/7).
- If you find MSXMLs, Uninstall them & then Restart the Computer.
- Download and Reinstall MSXML version 3 (MSXML3.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Download and install MSXML version 4 (MSXML.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Run McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) from
- Reinstall the McAfee Program.

Thank You!

I am trying to download McAfee Antivirus and keep getting error 76556 that does not permit installation I already removed all the other Antivirus/Firewall from the computer.... But still when i try to...

Was the other antivirus/firewall program you had installed on your PC McAfee or another brand? If there was another brand (example: Symantec) you will need to run a full uninstall utility (accessable from most software vendors websites). If the other antivirus/firewall was McAfee, run the full uninstall utility which is called the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool which you can obtain at the link I provided below; again this is for McAfee products only. If the last software you had on your PC was McAfee, then run this tool, this will do a complete job of removing old remnants that Add/Remove does not. It will then reboot your PC, and after which you should be able to reinstall your new McAfee software.,73330-order,3-page,1/description.html (McAfee only)

If it wasn't McAfee, you will have to check the company's site for a removal tool as Symantec (as an example) has one too.

Verify that you have access to that directory

you need to do everythin as administrator.
login with Adminstrator/Password and you will be able to do that.
If you do not have, set it / obtain it.
