I get this error but i opens another window scanning for 'Issues' found during install.
It is in the second install process of update, at 49% complete when this happens: the issue is "Avira Antiv" is displayed. It has a button to click on, which says 'Uninstall and Continue(or Refresh)? Clicking on it, comes back with could not remove, 'You must uninstall yourself then click on the Refresh Button"?
I got this Laptop(Gateway) with Windows 7 Home, originally. I have never seen or downloaded Avira Antivirus program or App on this PC?
However, doing regedit found there were some files in the Keys. Some were about going to the website and others were folders but i never found programs in the folders or Applications. 5/2/18 i contacted an MS agent, who took over machine and looked for the Avira files. Now, it may have been on the pc when i got it and i uninstalled it, or it came with another program like Nuance, Dragon13 Speech! I did find Avira items under the Nuance folders. I went to Avira and found they had a standalone program to clean all registries of avira, keys and all. i followed the instrcutions and it seemed to have worked, removing many things or at least going thru the motions. reset netsh and restarted pc. this included showing hidden files, etc.
all is good, did an Windows update reboot to clear some database issues found with it. Tried to install version 1803 again, from new download and all.
this did not remove the issue. the MS agent did his own thing on my pc, then decided that he would do an ISO download to my PC, and that i would run it. Well his instructions were faulty because it was supposed to leave a folder on my desktop but did not. instead it put and IE file in my Pictures folder? I found out that i had to image burn it to a DVD then run it that way. It was in the process of loading the ISO update BUT guess what? It still had the same error??? I wonder if my update history is somehow keeping the previous errors messages in database, and stopping any new download and install from getting past it?? Case #1424946613. Agents name was Raj. Probably in the East somewhere? I will try another agent tonight, almost 5/4, and see if anything changes. I know nobody will get this or address it for several days i am guessing?
