I have been through all the theads about this subject, and I have done all the things recommended. I still cannot install MSE. And the installation does not create an errorlog (in Docs and Settings/**** as described in one of the threads).
I tired to install AVG, - that went OK, and then I uninstalled it again and ran the independant removal tool afterward, so everythings should be removed. Still the same result.
What I do not understand is that there is no log showing what is wrong. Please help
I am using XP SP3 completedly updated (according to windows update)
Get Antimalware Local Install Package. I would assume that it is looking for the downloaded installation files and can't find them or something is blocking it. Assuming the former, the thread i pointed you to suggests removing registry keys that are incorrectly
populated to cause the install to run as an upgrade. That also means using the Fix-it routine to remove MSE from the PC.
If that doesn't help you, please do open the support case.
