Yeah, you're right on this one... that's why I couldn't understand why did you think that I'm talking something opposite of what you were stating... completely identical thougths...

Have a nice evening... I have to catch some sleep. I made 450 km today visiting my company's customers. Fridays are usually madness in here, Fridays are killing me...  ;D

I didn't place this post to start any arguments. I simply wanted to know if anyone had expierenced my problem and knew of a way to work around this issue. The facts I stated before are still true. With Avast installed on my system, and disabled every way I can find to disable it and all other programs shut down I can not install http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?product=58381&os=228&lang=en&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&softwareitem=sj664en
in regular mode or safe mode. When I uninstall Avast I can install this program. The only other program I have had difficulty installing with Avast loaded is Asus PC Probe http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3301.html . All other software, ie MS Office 2003, Firefox, Roxio 7, Quicken 2005 etc, installs with out a hitch.

You asked what error message I was getting, the answer is none. I put the cd in my drive, the autorun tries to launch the program, I get the HP picture on my screen and in a few seconds it just goes away and quits trying to install.

I dilligently try to keep all my drivers and bios up to date, I know of no newer drivers or bios upgrades which are available for my system which I have not performed.

That's for sure very strange... I have ASUS PC probe installed and it's working without any single problem... strange... really strange.

I tried the HP software and the probe on several systems. No problems at all. All systems XP Home or Pro, SP2 and Avast.

I have it installed on my system now as well as HP precision scan, after I got them installed they work flawlessly.

Thanks for letting me vent on this. I really like Avast I don't think there is a better anit-virus program out there at any price. I have Symantec antivirus corp edition 9 available to me free of charge, however I choose to use Avast. It just seems to work better.

We can end this thread any time.

Thanks again!

I'm not sure how to tell if they are 16 bit programs. Can you tell me how to identify?
