          Are you receiving any malicious pop ups on the computer that the computer is been infected ?
          Also provide some additional information like;

          What is the operating system ?
          Do we have a ny other antivirus installed in the computer

              Hi Jaime25,


              If your computer is already infected with a virus or other malware, this is supposed to happen while executing the file. I would recommend you stop the installation and run a scan for malware before attempting the install again.


              The following document would help you in running an advanced scan, http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?lc=1033&id=TS100054

              Kindly report back if you have any issues.
