    I'm assuming there is no other anti virus software installed on the laptop, and that any previous other products have been fully removed?

    Try running the Uninstall Tool linked to below, reboot, then try the installation again. It may have partially installed, hence the error message. If that doesn't work, please post a screenshot of the error message, so we can understand it more clearly.

  • i put that address in on the windows 8.1 try to download the tool and it saying this app can't run on your pc to find a version for your pc check with the software publisher

    Hi supermuppet,


    Could you please provide a bit more details such as:
    a.) Which F-Secure product you have subscribed? (F-Secure SAFE/ Internet Security/ etc.)
    b.) What is the website address you have downloaded the installer?




    Best Regards,
