PC w/ Spyware not allowing Applications to be installed
Posted on 2007-11-13
I scanned a PC using an online spyware program and it determined that the PC had a lot of spyware. Since this was only a scanning feature I tried to d/l various anti spyware programs ad-aware etc., but the program would not completely install. It would reach the 95-99% mark and then fail. This happens to any program that I try to install. I tried installing a newer version of the windows installer - that too fails.
I am pretty sure its due to the spyware/malware on the PC although, the windows updates seem to install w/o any issues. What can I do about getting programs installed on the computer and then wiping out the malware?
