  • Microsoft Security Essentials installation error 0x8004FF83

    Posted on April 26th, 2012 at 20:58 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    I’ve seen several reports of this error. The new version 4 of Microsoft Security Essentials refuses to install,  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.
