  • We need you to provide some more information about your PC and what and how you are trying to install.

    Which version of Windows do you have? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Which BD product are you trying to install - Antivirus Pro, Internet Security or Total Security?

    Is it the full-file, standalone version that you are trying to install?

    What is the exact error message you are receiving?

    If you are running Vista or Windows 7, make sure you right-click on the BD installation file and then select Run As Administrator.

  • Hi Daniel,

    I have the same problem here.

    I just renew my 3 PCs Internet Security Suite for another 2 years.

    I have the problem on one of my laptops, a Windows XP SP3 32bit machine.

    No matter what I did (uninstall 2010 with the uninstall tool, install, reinstall, safe mode, and so on...), I always got the same message about installer not having enough rights to create subdirectories in the install directory.

    It starts with "cache" but if I cheat and create this one before the installer starts, it complains about the next one.. so that is a dead end.

    The support didn't answer yet to my e-mails...
