Program preventing Windows Live Mesh From Installing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install Windows Live Essentials 2011 on my PC running 32 bit Windows 7 Professional. Every time I attempt to install the package, everything but Windows Live Mesh installs. It gets to 100% completion on the installation and then I get a message that states "Another program is preventing windows live from installing." I've tried to do several things without success, including:

    1) Making sure all the Windows Updates are current

    2) Disabling all of the components of my McAffee Securitey while installing.

    3) Doing a clean boot with only the Microsoft services running.

    4) Doing a Disk Cleanup of Downloaded Program Files, Temporary Internet Files, Thumbnails, and Temporary files.

    5) Running a registry cleanup program (RegCure).

    6) Uninstalling the components of Windows Live Essentials that did install.

    7) I even tried to install it in Safe Mode, but it would not let me.

    I've running out of ideas and I REALLY want to be able to sync files on my home computers.

    Thanks for your suggestions!
