Can't open the specified registry key

We are using EPO 3.6.1 and Virusscan 8.5i. We are able to get our desktop and laptop computers to automatically install the EPO client, however the Virusscan software seems to have a problem getting installed automatically. Below is a partial printout of Agentlog.txt file. It looks like there is a problem with a registry key or rights. However, if I manually install the Virusscan software (from CD) it then works fine and stays up-to-date fine.

Does anyone have an idea what might be the problem?
