AVG installation problem

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
When trying to install AVG onto an XP Pro machine I get the following
error message:

Local machine: installation failed
    Installation:
        Error: Action failed for registry key
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\:
creating registry key....
            Access is denied.  (5)

When I go to that key in the registry I can't do anything to it
(rename, delete, etc.) due to permissions - and I can't change the
permissions even logging in under the Administrator account in Safe
Mode.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated!!


Re: AVG installation problem

Last time I saw that error was trying to install AVG into an early Vista
build!
You need to take ownership of the registry key, and then change the
permissions
