Windows 7 64 bit and Anti-theft - big problem!

I have just downloaded the McAfee offer of Total Protection 2012 at £29.99 in the UK.  However as soon as I try to run the setup it tells me that the inbuilt functionality for anti-theft isnt compatible with 64 bit W7! where did it say that when I was buying it?!

I currently have a product that will not download at all as this message comes up at the very first set up window after running the .exe file.

Surely this cant be correct? the screens I went through purchasing this offer clearly had a logo stating that what I was buying was 'compatible with Window 7'.

I ran the virtual technician but that said it couldnt find any McAfee products whcih makes sense as I cant run it!
