Hi, I tried installing Google toolbar. The green progress bar completed, but the install seemed to stall for a minute or so, and then I got a browser screen that said that the toolbar had completed installing correctly...however the toolbar is not displayed in IE8. TOOLS | TOOLBARS doesn't show it as being there either. Control Panel | Programs and Features shows it installed, but no size or version info in those columns. It uninstalled without errors.
Ask toolbar installation doesn't complete. After the 2nd Run...it displays the Ask logo in the taskbar for a few seconds and then the box that says 1. Click run in the window that appears 2. Click "run" again in the next window remains on the screen. If I close the window, I'm back on the http://sp.ask.com/toolbar/install/web/ask/download.php
screen. Control panel | Programs and Features does not show the toolbar as installed. (CCLEANER moped up the remains.)
So, apparently there is something else security-wise that is stopping these from installing. Event logs only show error with Ask toolbar install, not Google toolbar. Error 1720. There is a problem with this windows installer package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Custom action vb_os64bit script eror - 2147024894, WshShell.RegRead: Invalid root in registry key "HKCU\Software|clients\StartMenuInternet\". Line 16, Column 3.
Hope this helps.
