Hi,

I tried installing the Blackberry desktop software v4.x.
Installation failed with a virus alert as "Malicious Script MSIExec.exe"

Even though i ignore that alert message,the Installation was rolled back.
I tried thius twice and still failed.

Pls help what could be the problem

Thanks

You could try turning off whatever virus software you have running.

I wouldn't admit this in public, but my first attempt at installation also failed when a script alert appeared. I knew it was OK, so I hit OK, not realizing I said OK to halting the script :)

norton antivirus 2005 catches this as a malicious script. you can just mark it to allow it to run for the particular session and it will keep running.

other antivirus applications will likely have the same sort of exception or you could simply disable the AV for a few minutes.
