    I have been trying to install windows defender. I can download the programme no problem I save it onto my desk top Then when I click on it I get a message saying that access is denied. I have tried downloading with Firefox and as the program I was down loading was from Microsoft I tried with IE7.
    I have tried saving to my desktop and to a flash drive What ever I do I get the same responce "access is denied"

    I seem to remember I had the same problem with Another programme that used Windows instaler package. I also cant not install windows critical updates They download but will not install

    I have run all my security software and done an on line scan, nothing found

    I have even tried running the programme from source instead of saveing it

    Do you have Service Pack 2 installed?

    You need service pack 2 installed for Defender to work.

    To install updates, do this:
    click start - run - cmd - ok
    write these commands and click enter after each one (you must get a success message for each one):

    regsvr32 wuweb.dll
    regsvr32 wups2.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wuapi.dll

    I have Windows XP Pro SP2, and had the same problem installing updates. I did this and all went right!
    Good luck!
