    If you haven't already, you need to read this thread on how to remove VMS. It will contain the link to the Virgin Media Removal Tool which you should run before installing F-Secure.

    Secondly,  make sure that you have fully removed all other 'active', ie, 'real time' anti-virus products from your machine, other than those which are certified compatible, such as Malwarebytes. This list of Uninstallation Tools may help.

    If neither of the above apply, then try using the F-Secure Uninstallation Tool and start again.  It may be that the failed installation is stalling further installation attempts.

    Hope that helps! :)
