When you download new antivirus software, ( Please note: if you have purchased it online for download they should have sent you an email with a registry key which you will need when you install the software, so you might want to look ofr that and print it out.)

1>uninstall current software- unless this is just an upgrade of the same software. If you are upgrading same software, you do not need to uninstall.

2> go to the toolbar>tools>internet options> general> and delete all cookies

3>you need to make sure that you have turned all running programs off . Go through the little icons on the lower right and click on each one to exit or turn off- every one that you can.

4> make sure that you have the correct software to download for your operating system and CP

5>Begin the download and save it to your desktop.

6> When it is finished you can click on it to install it.

7>After the installation is complete, you can restart your computer which will start up your new software and your other proggys that you turned off.

I would be good to know what software you are attempting to download and what your CP and Op system are. So Let us know if you need more help.

Sounds like you have been infected with malware.
make sure your anti-virus software is working and up to date.
You may need to purchase and run software to remove the infection
Ad-Aware is a good product for that
SpyBot Search and Destroy is another

Try uninstall norton antivirus and load avira antivirus, run word program and check whether an error will come out. If no error, your antivirus might be corrupted and somehow affects your application. If error still occurs after replacing norton, uninstall office program and reinstall again.

You can also receive this error message when you have antivirus e-mail protection or personal firewall software enabled on your computer.
Try disabling the antivirus program through msconfig or close the antivirus program and see if you get the same error again, if not then disable email scanning and this will help you.

Virus disabled my sound and I can't download any anti virus softw

You Better Format your Drive if not possible then plug it on some other PC (Which got the AntiVirus, with Latest Updates ).
Scan it then, make it clean and go on.
But if your Machine is totally messed up then it will be very difficult for you make it absolutely error free, so the best is to begin again with the antivirus, and keep the Virus Updated.
