Hi jackie648 and welcome
Any PC based firewalls have to be turned off to succesfully download and install BTNP.
Check to see if any are running.
Also BTNP should then detect any installed antivirus programs and also remove these as it installs.
Yeah I got that, you probably have vestiges of McAfee lurking on your machine. Do a search for "McAfee Removal Tool" and download it from McAfee's site. Run it et voila. The new version of Netprotect Plus is loads better than the old one, it cleared up a number of issues I had been suffering since I started using McAfee. It also found a couple of trojans that the previous version failed to find which was a bit of a worry.
Best of luck.
I had problems with my McAfee it went rogue in that it stopped me getting on line even when it was switched off so I uninstalled it and downloaded a new one .....not a good idea as it was the new beta one and it doesn't start at boot up, I have to remember to manually switch it on.
Spoke to a nice man from India but he didn't know how to help so it looks like I'm stuck with this beta rubbish for the time being.
If you present McAfee is working I would hold on the new one for a while but then it might be ok on other op systems.
There is an "Enable protection during startup" option. That said I'm not sure that does what I think it does and the BT "learn more" web pages are worse than useless.

Yes, I get similar problems - the pc gets stuck on the download page - it says check INternet connection or McAfee server not working . . . can't seem to get beyond here. The other PC downloaded and worked fine - so it must be how the pc is set up - it's running ESET Av software . .is there anything I can do ?
I uninstalled McCrappy as it wouldn't start at boot up, I then run the removal tool then reinstalled it, only it didn't it crashed my system instead......... It looks as if McCrappy has turned out even more rubbish.
I have installed the new Kaspersky 2011 and its running like a dream, goodbye NetProtect.
