Infection of the computer by the Bagle virus.
Problems on the PC with other installers, viruses, spyware.

Go to Start -> Programs and make sure there is NO other antivirus installed that can be automatically uninstalled. Check the Which programs are uninstalled automatically by Panda Cloud Office Protection? help.
Check 1: Error generating another msi installer
If there has been a problem with the PC, check the walupg.log
file, which must have another error number on a previous line, apart from error 2081
This error number is returned by default on installing a Microsoft .msi
Further information on these error codes is available on the following Microsoft links:
These problems can be due to previous .msi package installation failures.
Additionally, check the latest drivers are installed in the network devices (My computer - Manage - Device Manager - Network adapters
) and that no network device is disabled and/or with recognition problems (yellow triangle with exclamation). If so, install it correctly.
Check 2: Corrupted installer
Check if there is a firewall on the network, and make sure it has not blocked the total or partial download of the protection .msi installer.
The installer has a name similar to “XXXXX_Panda Endpoint Protection x86.msi”
By default, once the installer is downloaded, it is left on the following path:
NOTE: To make sure the file downloaded is not corrupt, try the installer on another network PC. It doesn’t matter if Panda Cloud Office Protection is already installed. If it is, a message will be displayed indicating the protection is already installed.
Check 3:Bagle infection
Use Windows Explorer to go to the %ProgramFiles%\Panda Security\WAC folder and create a TXT called PAVSRV51.EXE.
Once created, the PAVSRV51.EXE will soon disappear.
The files created by the Bagle virus include:
srosa.sys in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
wintems.exe in C:\Windows\System32
hidr.exe in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
The variants are downloaded to the C:\Windows\System32\Downl folder. This folder will contain numerous EXE files.
Check 4: Problems with other installers or viruses
Make sure no product installation has been launched.
Carry out a full scan of your PC to check there are no viruses. You can use ActiveScan 2.0 to do so.
