I can't seem to find a way to respond so I will have to do it this way. I can't use the Virtual Technician as it won't 'initialise' and stays stuck in the initialising phase, probably because 'Real time scanning' is off. I am also not happy to have my computer on for so long when it is not protected! I've no idea how to get past this 'catch 22' situation!
