Following notification of this error (0x80070424) and a subsequent uninstall of FEP 2010, we've been unable to re-install Forefront on a Windows 7 machine for this instance/question. (This has happened to a handful of computers on our network.)
Focusing on one affected machine, I've deleted any registry key mentioning Forefront, repaired .NET 4.0, uninstalled any secondary anti-spyware programs, etc., with no success. Forefront fails to install, providing a message only that it was unsuccessful.
Any ideas? Thanks for your time.

Thank you for the post.
1.Run Windows Installer Cleanup utility (Program Install and Uninstall troubleshooter) first, or you have to find other force uninstall utility.
2.Run process monitor when you reinstall FEP client, find any file/registry access denied entries.
If there are more inquiries on this issue, please feel free to let us know.
