    Error Code 0x8004ff56 While Installing Microsoft Security Essentials

    I have installed the windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 and I have successfully recovering mine system through BSOD with producer recovery disk. Now I have small issue on mine Microsoft Security Essentials. I am not able to install the Microsoft Security Essentials on mine system. While installing the Microsoft Security Essentials I have got the following error saying that: "The Security Essentials Installation Wizard is lost a filter manager rollup package required to entire the installation. To carry on installing Security Essentials, you have to download the necessary package." And after that I have click the "Download required package" and after that it download anything and after that it gives the error code. Now I donít know how to solve this issue. Can anyone suggest on this.

    The error code above is probably because the system is not having the package manager summary filter is a mandatory package needed to install the Microsoft Security key on your system. So here I would suggest that you download and install the package manager summary of the filter. Click here to download. Once downloaded double click the file to install it and then run the Microsoft Security Assistant Essential for installation on your system.

    I have gone through this same issue and I would like to suggest you to uninstall or disable the all third party software and after that you can solve your issue. While installing the Microsoft Security Essentials make sure that you have uninstalled or disable the all antivirus and other third party software and then try to install the Microsoft Security Essentials. If this doesnít helps to install then you need to run some cleanup tool and so that you can solve your issue.

First you need to disable the all third party and after that go to the some official website and then search for the Microsoft Security Essentials software. Now once you complete the downloading and then install the setup file and after that your issue will solved. Now once you complete the installation restart your system and after that enable third party. I hope this will help you.
