    I have tried to install Serive Pack 2 on my Windows Vista laptop, but get
    error message 80080005. My laptop has been crashing a lot recently and I have
    recently installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2010, but sometimes when it
    crashes and does a system check it re-installs McAfee Security Scan Plus. I
    also have Windows Defender running. Not sure if having all this security
    software going at the same time is preventin me from downloading SP2. Any

    Having 2 AV's running causes evil things to happen to your system. Dump
    CrapAfee, download and run the free version of, then see what happens. Good luck.

  3. Use the McAfee removal tool.
    How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee consumer products using the
    McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe)

    Then, reinstall Kaspersky Internet Security 2010

    However, I'd be surprised if an install of Kaspersky suite, doesn't
    disable the Windows Dender on your behalf.

    Best way to install Vista SP2


    If you're having problems installing SP2 *via Windows Update*, you can also
    post about your problems here instead:

    Please post any other Vista SP2-related questions in a Vista-specific
    newsgroup (e.g., Vista General) or either of these 2 forums:
    <> ;

    Installation Tips:

    • Your computer will restart several times during the installation process:
    Make certain you've saved your work and closed all open applications before
    beginning the install.

    • Disable
    (1) your anti-virus application,
    (2) any real-time system protections afforded by any anti-spyware
    applications (except Defender), &
    (3) your third-party firewall (if any) and then
    (4) enable the Windows Firewall before installing or uninstalling
    Vista SP2.

    • The installation process can take an hour or more: If you're installing
    SP2 on a portable computer, make sure that you plug-in the power cord and
    have the battery inserted into its bay.

    • Vista SP1 is a prerequisite for installing SP2. If you use Windows Update
    or the Automatic Update feature in Windows Vista, you will not be offered
    the option to install SP2 until you first install SP1.

    How to obtain the latest Windows Vista service pack:

    Good luck!

  4. And did your McAfee subscription (or free trial) expire before you installed
    KIS 2010?

    Did you run the McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool before you installed
    KIS 2010?

    Have you purchased KIS 2010?

    Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
    Windows Vista SP2 issues until August 30, 2010. Availability of chat or
    e-mail support differs depending on your geographic location. Some issues
    may require more advanced support for which there is a charge. Go to &
    select appropriate category (i.e., Download issue; Installation issue;
    Issues after you install a service pack).

    McAfee Security Scan Plus was included with a so-called security update,
    most likely for an Adobe "product", probably Flash Player but may even
    have come from your ISP or it installed when a tool bar was installed.
    According to the above page:

    " Uninstalling Security Scan

    There are two ways to remove McAfee Security Scan Plus:

    You can also uninstall through the McAfee Security Scan Plus folder:

    1. Under Start menu, go to all Programs
    2. Open McAfee Security Scan Plus folder
    3. Select “Uninstall†"

    So, it appears that McAfee counts *one* way to remove MSSP as two ways.

    McAfee and Adobe, hand in hand. It's as if syphilis met gonorrhea and
    they morphed into a cyber tumor.
