I had to disable AT and am also seeing a similar problem enabling chrome applications. Windows 7 64 SP1 with TrueCrypt. Does any one have an answer to this issue.
Is this the old Mcafee anti rheft currently called file lock or Intel anti theft found as a hardware on new PCs/laptops?
If first call Mcafee support if latter call
Hi Tony, that I do not know. I purchased Intel AntiTheft. The Intel site redirected me to McAfee to install the software. I have called both, McAfee redirected me to Intel. Intel has not provided an answer in almost 2 weeksm I am hoping the forum helps. I am afraid to uninstall the softare and possibly cause other problems I see being reported in this forum.
Did you call intel via the details in the link above or email them?
Could you please post the screen shot of the error for better attention. I can check with the concern team re to this issue if I have a error screen shot.
The error that Chrome pops up with is this:
Package is invalid. Details: 'Could not create directory for unzipping: 'C:\Users\(my user name)\AppData\Local\Temp\scoped_dir_7508_31649\CRX_INSTALL''.
This is when attempting to install applications from their web store. I spent ages researching this error and was convinced it was a Chrome problem for days, until I stumbled on another forum where it was suggested the AntiTheft software was at fault. I was skeptical but uninstalling AntiTheft solved the problem. I'm using AntiTheft Version 2.0, Build 1.0.1114.6 and Chrome Version 24.0.1312.57 m (latest at time of writing).
I found this in a Google search, it is worth a try. Please try the below and update me the outcome
