So, do you already have a version of F-Secure installed on the 8.1 laptop?

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.

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?

 

Thanks.
