Cannot install McAfee Internet Security on Windows 7

Hi -


I have McAfee Internet Security (4 licenses) with an expiry of Feb 7 2014.

I have the most recent software nstalled on 3 machines - 2 are Windows 7, 1 is Windows 8.


Today I have struggled for hours and cannot get it installed on a 4th machine, this one also running Windows 7.


The steps I have followed:

     - used MCPR to remove McAfee with no problems reported & then rebooted

     - ran the McAfee pre-Install tool with no problems reports

     - logged into My Account and downloaded & then executed ´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐McAfeeSetup.exe

     - as was the case in the 3 other installations, a window came up informing me that the installation was checking my PC for Threats

     - after about 5 seconds that window disappeared & the following appeared:



Nothing further happened. Although the "Label" buttons and the Window close "X", appeared to be clickable, they were not. From this point the installation was frozen.

I either had to kill the Install process from Task Manager or Reboot.


I have repeated these steps a number of times  with the same results each time.


Any suggestions?


Thanks. Richard.
