I got a problem trying to reinstall MS essentials.
I thought I'd try a different virus software, but decide to go back to MSEE.
Problem is I cant reinstall this, keep getting a message error code as above. When I googled this it shows plenty of so called scan programs to fix this but none are free.
How do I over come this problem?

carried out this, but awaiting MS to contact me, with little hope of thise ever happening.
I'm now in a postion that I have NO A/V software installed, cant even load AVG as it tells me to uninstall MS Security Essentials. Problem being I thought I had and cant locate any entries for MSE and yet it appears to be still on my PC but where?
Any help would b e gratefully appreciated.

Do you have a System Restore Point to go back to?

THanks Zeppelyn,
I carried out all what you have sent but still no joy.
Regarding the last item from your link regarding the install log,from the path you gave I don't have this msseInstall.log file.
CAN I delete this path Microsoft Security Essentials/support????
When I checked via the control panel security it seems that Msee is still monitoring my PC, but I know I uninstalled this, well I think I did?
