I too have successfully installed avast! Home Edition on Windows Server 2008 using this registry tweak. Many thanks!
Thank you Scimitar! I suceeded installing AVAST and rebooting the machine. Now it runs smoothly.
The only thing I noticed is that the update function will throw the same “OS not supported” error everytime I try to update. Should we tweak the registry and deny read access everytime we need to update? I am afraid that if I permanently leave the registry setting with read denied I won’t be able to boot my machine (I am using the Administrator account). Any suggestions?
Just keep the read permissions for the ‘ProductOptions’ denied for your user account, after installing avast!. It shouldn’t cause any problems. I’ve kept the registry tweak in place after installing avast! and have not run into any problems. Plus, I’m able to perform program and definition updates.
