I’ve seen several reports of this error. The new version 4 of Microsoft Security Essentials refuses to install,Â and the installer spits out an error 0x8004FF83.
Microsoft knows about the problem, but I haven’t heard of any resolution.
There’s a discussion going on the Microsoft Answers forum. If you’ve encountered this error code, you can help a lot by going to the forum, following the instructions and sending the setup logs they’re requesting.
