I was advised to post my HJT logfile in here - it was thought that Malware could be the issue.. My original message is below and the issue I have.


Hi,

I have been trying to troubleshoot Adaware 8.2 for the last week or so. Everytime I click 'install' it will work for a couple of seconds and then stop stating:

"The Installation for Adaware has failed: This installation is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system administrator. Please check your settings and try again."

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit and it is a sole use computer of which I am the Admin.

1) I have searched and searched and then a little more searching about this and although other ppl have 'system policy' issues with other software I can't find any instances of it with Adaware.

2) I have had Adaware before but it is certainly not on my HDD anymore.

3) I have used Windows Installer Cleanup, Revouninstall.

4) I have tried installing from different sites incase of a bad file. I have also tried installing different versions of Adaware but the same outcome.

5) I can install other software, it is only Adaware that is having this issue.

6) Vista Home Premium doesn't have GPedit or Local Security settings to adjust.

7) I have tried it by right clicking and running as Administrator. Both in normal and safe mode. I have tried to install from command prompt as admin. I have tried to install from "secret admin login". I have tried to turn off UAC.

8) I have searched the registry for instances of Adaware or Lavasoft.

9) I even tried to get a drunk chimpanzee to install it for me but he failed too.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks much.

HJT Logfile.
