MSE x64 english corrupt file install message

i just tried to install MSE on my daughters laptop and each time i got a corrupt file error message ,after a quick google it is a known issue to microsoft for the english x64 version only.
there is a workaround that works and to do so download and install a different language x64 then do a registry hack.( i used spanish)

Quote:
1. click the "windows key" and type in regedit
2. run regedit as administrator to ensure the proper actions are taken.
3. follow this HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Security Essentials
(edit: or microsoft security client)
4. There will be three files in this area.
5. Right-Click on (Default) and select Modify
6. Under Value data:, type in EN
7. Do #'s 5 & 6 again for Market
8. MOST IMPORTANTLY, RESTART COMPUTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER FOR AFFECTS TO TAKE PLACE.
respect and thanks to boblynch for his post here...

I think I have never heard of a workaround that uses install file on one language to bypass issues on intended language install file, then hacks the language back to intended.

Ingenious!

booh, I am curious.

When you performed the "surgery" did you use en-us or en-uk? Does it matter?

Thank you for the well done in the other MSE thread.

In my registry the value is en-us.
Did you or your daughter notice any difference how some of the words were spelled?

If not the change may follow a Country tag in her OS, it's not important, just curious.
