Re: nvda installation problem

From the description this seems unlikely, as it did not work in the first place.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Assuming its an admin account then most people tend to only encounter issues with the UAC screen or updating when a desktop icon cannot be created, both of which are well known.
I just wonder if something else like bloatware which is often on new machines is interfering with installs. too many anti virus or security programs can cause some very odd things to happen, ie, if nvda has partially installed as you suggest, but cannot complete and the old bit cannot be stopped. I'd do a clean reboot of the machine and try then as a first step. However I have also noticed a number of new laptops seem to have dodgy sound drivers that clip the start of speech as well, though this is not the cause here from the description.
When a program is partly installed it can be a real pain to clean out the rubbish if you are not OK with delving into the diagnostics, even worse if its a screenreader and thus you have to rely on slow clunky narrator to do it!

Are you sure you don't have a copy of NVDA that is running on the logon screen?
