Those were my best guesses. I will let someone else take over from here as I am clueless as to what would cause an error, aside from those programs.

Not a solution, but worth to try: Create another administrator account and log into it, then try to install this AV there.

I tried that but it doesn't work. I'm thinking of doing a Clean Install of the newest build of Windows 7 and trying to install again but that just scares me.

However you will have to very soon. RTM is almost at the doors.

Morro works just fine with Avast! installed as well. No conflicts as of yet.

But why would you want two anti virus products on your system?

There are always gaps in coverage. Since both are free, I don't really trust either. This way, I will catch pretty much anything. (Hopefully)

Besides, it doesn't suck up too much resources. So whatever.

I think this way your chance to catch something is reduced since 2 av on the system may cause conflicts in the real time protection and the virus just passes by while 2 'bodyguards' are 'fighting each other'.

LB i would just use one.
It could cause conflicts.
I think MSE is a darn good AV

Yeah, using two seems like overkill to me and hogging more system resources than required.

Think about it, you're downloading a file from the Net and you have two programs scanning said file as it's being created. That simply can't be as fast as only one program doing it...just as an example.
