Hello and welcome Zincix mate if that isn't installing and personally I don't like that program have a look at some of these and try another they are all free and I would look at Bitdefender, Avast, and Avira at least but there are plenty.

Probably the Best Free Security List in the World > section 2 has the real time stuff.



In addition if you haven't got them already you would do worse than keep these as permanent add ons to the security you pick.

A possible reason for this problem is that you have conflicting security software installed fully or partially on the PC. Remove all other security software from the PC.
You may need to use a cleanup tool to remove your prior security software.
