What were you trying to install ?

And on which Linux distro/version ?

You PM'd me that the software was AVG and Ccleaner...

Ccleaner is Windows software, so can I assume BOTH peices of software are the Windows versions ?

You cannot run Windows software natively in Linux .. there is a version of AVG for Linux, but IMHO it's unnecessary on anything but a Linux server that's servicing Windows clients .. in fact AV software might be more of an attack vector in its own right under Linux (because it would require elevated privileges to work) than a benefit.

Ccleaner is WINDOWS ONLY .. it'd be hard for it to (amongst other things) clean out the Windows registry on a system that doesn't have one ;)
(again there is little to no need for this kind of software under Linux).
