ReInstall Issue


Recommended Posts

The Problem is that I had the program installed on an external HDD and a virus got in and corrupted/deleted a large portion of the program and my anti-virus thought it a good idea to remove all of the programs files.

But I still can't Install/Uninstall, basically it runs like normal till it gets to the End of install and Complains: "Fatal error during installation."

 

How is this Fixed?

Hey @Crimden, if you don't have anything to add to a thread, you don't need to post on it.  :)  In Troubleshooting threads in particular, we'd prefer you didn't.  As the original poster noted, the install is failing.  There's no reward for posting a lot, so just hold off if you don't have anything to add.  Thanks.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

It's probably safe to say your anti-virus software did an incomplete job. To resolve the issue you'll need to remove all the hooks before re-installing. Read this thread: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/692-install-update-or-uninstall-trouble-read-this/ In particular you want post number two.
