RE: installer quick scan - Now on 1 hour and counting


This may take a long incase if you have some infections in your computer. Did you recently come across any kind of popup or weird alerts appearing on the computer?

Moreover, you can also try the following:

• Open Internet Explorer> Click on Tools> Internet Options> Delete all the Temporary Internet Files & Cookies.
• Also click on the Advanced Tab> and Reset the Internet Explorer to its default settings.
• Check for Windows Update and make sure you update all available updates including optional updates also
• Try the installation and if the issue still persist, please reboot the computer in Safe Mode with Networking and try the installation again

How to boot the computer in Safe Mode with Networking:

The moment you boot up the computer keep on tapping the F8 key on the keyboard, by using the up and down arrow key select Safe Mode with Networking and hit Enter twice.
