Failed Software Installations

I am not able to install any programs onto my computer.

The last program i tried to install was the software for telstra bigpond wireless broadband internet.

The install failed and said "error writing to file: C:\Program\Files\Telstra\Bigpond Wireless Broadband 2.0\register.exe. Verify that you have access to that directory."

I get the issue when installing any sofware. I have tried to install different anti virus software as well and get the same issue.

I am logged in as administrator when i am installing but the the software tells me to verify that i have access to the directory.

Do i have a virus or what else could it be and how can i rectify this issue.

Why can't I use MP3rocket on my windows 8 64-bit laptop. The software keeps freezing up every time I try to use it


Are you sure the software is compatible with Windows 8 and 64-bit installations?
You could also check and make sure that you don't have the 32-bit version installed.

Macaffee antivirous is not working though it is valid upto May 2011


Try to repair the installation.

START > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
highlight the McAfee program - click on the "change/remove" button, and if there's an option
provided to repair the installation, select it.

In the absence of that option (every package is responsible to provide its own options), then
run the McAfee software from the desktop shortcut (icon), or

START > All Programs > McAfee

then find and run an option within this to "update" or "repair" your current McAfee installation.
Viruses will often attempt to damage anti-virus software installations or block access to
Symantec or McAfee web sites, so repairing anti-virus installations is commonly needed.

Usb ports not powering a keyboard or mouse


Best would be to determine whether any changes was made to the system prior to the error starting. Changes would include Windows updates, driver installations, hardware installations or software installations and upgrades. If you are unable to determine this, then boot into Safe Mode and view the System and Application Logs. Stop any services which may report that it can't start or has some or other error. If Software upgrades has been done, do a roll back on these and remove any newly installed hardware. If no upgrades where done hardware or software wise then disable all devices which is not required to boot the system and disable all services and applications loading on startup which is not required to boot the system. If the system boots after this then enable each program and devices separately ( Re-booting the computer after each one is enabled ), until the system fails. Disable the last device enabled before system failure and continue the process until finished leaving the devices / programs which causes system failure disabled.

I want to know how to uninstall ghost buster and get every bit of it off?


Try Ashampoo Uninstaller or similar software that gets off every bit of unwanted software. Use function "Install new applications". It asks for setup.exe, install.exe or similar executable file, that runs GhostSurf installer. Point to it. After all the installations completes, "Ashampoo Uninstaller" logs the installation. Now uninstall the unwanted program using "Uninstall logged programs". That's it! Good Luck!
