Hello malpert and welcome to BC :thumbsup:

In order to assist you, we need a bit more information.

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.?

I see that you have problems installing security programs. Do you have security programs already installed? If so, please name them, and let us know if these programs are working.
