    Youíve not specified what is the software you have installed in your system. I think you have downloaded some hardware driver and installed in your system. Uninstall that driver and install that driver again. If you get that message again then I think you have downloaded some corrupted file and you need to remove that file from your system. Always remember whenever you download any software or anything from internet then you should scan the file first before installation. It may be virus or any malware. You should always download a software from a reliable sites. Now, install a good antivirus software in your system and scan your system for virus. Hope it works for you.

    If you get this message before the completion of installation process, then your software is not completely installed in your system. Some part of your software is remaining for installation and may be it gets corrupted, therefore youíre getting this error. Try to uninstall that software, if you can see some part of that software in control panel> add or remove program hen remove that from the list. After removing it install that software again, if you still got the same problem then change the source of your downloading. Try to download that software from some other sites and then install in your system. Sometimes some files are corrupted on some sites.

    If you are windows vista user then you may get this type of error while installing. If you donít have administrator rights and you are trying to install something in your system then you may get this type of error. Sometimes If you logged as a administrator then also youíll get this type of message. This message is get in windows vista due to some incorrect setting. First make sure you are logging as a administrator, because only administrator has a rights to install the software in the network. If youíre a admin and you still have this problem, then you can contact to any software techie to solve this issue.

    Mostly this type error youíll get while installing a trial version software. If youíre installing a trial version software then please make sure that you have installed a antivirus software in your system. Scan the file or software for virus, There may be some infected file by virus. If any virus detected then remove it and then download a software from a reliable sites. Do not download any content from any unauthorized or unreliable sites there may be chance of virus or any threats while downloading. If you have not installed any antivirus software then install it first. You can download the antivirus software from internet.
