How do I stop "setup " error messages

Hi - I have a barely used Window 7 pc on which I run only Yahoo messenger and more importantly Proquote ( stock exchange data)

I keep getting the following pop up messages:

Setup was unable to automatically close all applications etc etc before continuing setup etc etc with the options to "Abort, Retry or Ignore" I have tried all 3 options, i have re started the pc but this pop keeps occurring- I don't even know what it;s trying to setup!

related I'M also getting a Setup message saying: " unable to execute file c:/users/wayneoffice/appdata/roaming/compatability verifier/compatabilitycheck.exe create proces failed code 5 "

I generally use a mac - and have no idea how to remove these error messages nor do I even know what they are trying to do! help!

You might have some malware that luckily is failing its install. I would run Malwarebytes and see if it turns up anything before we start trying to debug this issue. It's free and available for download here:

It may not be but neither Amazon nor MS will take any responsibility for it not being genuine so I've given up with them both. I...
