Re: computer at risk new program


Is this Windows 7 SP1?   Also did you have any other security software installed previously, if so is it gone and did you run their removal tool?  

Did the installer indicate any particular reason why it failed?

There is free telephone or online chat support available by clicking the Technical Support link under 'Useful Links' at the top of this page if you need it.

Refunds are available through Customer Service linked in the same area but hopefully we'll be able to avoid that.
