Hopefully I have came to the right section and if so, that someone can help me.


I can't install any new programs, in this example: a new anti virus program.


I have attached a recent error from Event Viewer to assist.


I have merged the regedit for exe files, but it hasn't remedied the problem.


Does anyone have a fix for this type of problem?


I thank you very much in advance.


Best regards,

Can you create another user via User Accounts in Control Panel and see if you can install new applications?

Do you have any AV on your computer installed already? This seems like something malware may do.
