    Error installing programs.

    To add to the problem I received this issue after I installed bioshock in safe mode. "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect" Totally removed AVG and all these errors went away. FYI- you might have issue by installing latest AVG.

    Error installing programs.

    I think that AVG has taken permission over. If I go into safe mode I can install these programs with out issues.

    Error installing programs.

    I tried to installed GRAW2 and Bioshock Demo and keep getting this error 'Windows cannot access specified device, path, or file You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." AVG keeps flagging the setup.exe as a Trojan. I disable AVG and I still can't install these programs
