Lack of User Rights
« on: July 10, 2011, 11:15:47 PM »
I have downloaded the free version - but now I have received an error message which states that I do not have sufficient user rights, for any upgrades. I have even attempted to uninstall the software to then reinstall. Any ideas folks. Many thanks.

Not knowing what OS you are using try...control panel...programs and features...add/remove (XP) uninstall (Vista/Win7)...double click avast...scroll to repair and click...re-boot. Hope this helps.  :)

I have exactly the same problem.  Win 7 64 bit.  I uninstalled the prior version of Avast free using avast clear.  Have downloaded the install file three times.  I am an admin - "not enough rights..."  Tried "Run as Admin..."  Same exact thing.  This all started after a security update from Microsoft last week or so.  I have used Avast free for years - but now, I cannot install.  Here is full "details" from error message  I blocked some parts of the path for security using xxxx....:
