Best Answer

» There might be some infections on the computer, I suggest that you run a virus scan on the computer using Hit Malware and try to install the program.

If the issue still persists, I suggest that you temporarily disable Windows Firewall and disable the firewall within the antivirus software if you have installed any on the computer and try to install the program and check if you are able to install without any issues. If you are able to install the program, you may re-enable the Windows Firewall and the security software on the computer.

You may try to install the program by performing clean boot on the computer, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

If you feel it is quite troublesome to do all the procedures of the clean boot, maybe you can try to use DLL Suite. It is especially useful for the daily PC Users: a totally automated free repair tool supports for free download and fix of any .dll file, .exe file or .sys file. When you come across a virus infection like Worm:Win32/Boinberg, it can be used to remove all the associated aftermath.

    A related error seems to be "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded".

    Workaround for this is: (Also works for the first error.)Create a new local admin account on your machine > Log into it > Download the file.

    1. End Task on EXPLORER.EXE from Task Manager.2. Start the Registry Editor3. Look for the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{EF87B4CB-F2CE-4785-8658-4CA6C63E38C6}\TopViews\{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}4. Rename the key so it looks like the following:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{EF87B4CB-F2CE-4785-8658-4CA6C63E38C6}\TopViews\{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}.BACKUP5. From Task Manager click on File | New Task (Run) and type EXPLORER.EXE and hit return. 6. Now try your search from the Start Menu again.

    If the above process doesn't work for you, you can always put it back the way it was by reversing the process above.

    Note: Modifying REGISTRY settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of REGISTRY settings can be solved. Modifications of these settings are at your own risk.

    Once you have exported the ky, you can then remove the key. To remove a registry key, Select the registry key you want to delete by right-clicking on it with your mouse. This will bring up a menu. Select "Delete" to remove the key. Remember once you have made a deletion, it is permanent.
