Can't run ANY installer

Hello Tom's Hardware community.

I have come to you with a huge problem. Any installer (should it be Blue Stacks, WarZ, anything) won't "run". Now, the process is started, but in Task Manager, the installer just stays at 124K memory and 0% CPU.

I have restarted several times, and I am currently running a virus scan, which I did yesterday as well and nothing came up.


Could this be a Windows 7 bug or a super secret virus I don't know about?

Any help is appreciated.


Thanks in advance!

  1. warZ got bad review anyway. So any software won't install?

    I play it for the laughs, and I don't feel like buying anything else.


    Yes. No software will install.
  3. check event viewer? which anti-virus do you use?

    I have Norton Internet Security, MalwareBytes, and Super Anti-Spyware.

    And what exactly should I look for in event viewer?
  5. Does anybody have an idea?

    Hey man, it's been a couple of months an it maybe pointless to reply but just in case...

    I been having this problem aswell and there is a simple and quick fix that worked for me, create a new folder on desktop and name it whatever you want, then move the installer into this folder. simple fix that works for me, everything is installing just fine now.
  7. Hey, did you get a solution of this. I am having the same problem.
    Thanks.
