Windows Malicious software removal tool is preventing me from installing a known good program, is there a workaround? I can't even figure out how to remove Windows malicious software removal tool.

That is why I asked him what os he was running, carpo. It is probably something else like that UAC or something ...

I have UAC turned off. Maybe Windows Defender then. When I try to open Windows Defender I get "Application failed to initialize: 0x800106ba." So there is something wrong with Windows Defender.

Go into the services and disable it. Then reboot. When you do that try to install the program again.

With my systems; the first thing I do is disable windows defender and UAC. Neither one of them aren't needed and they both cause more probs than they are worth. Of course, windows defender used to be good, when it was giant.

sfc /scannow should fix Windows Defender.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
