If you do a search of the forum you will find a few threads such as this one. https://community.bt.com/t5/Apps-and-Extras-from-BT/Net-Protect-Plus-Windows-10/td-p/1455097
Personally I would say you were lucky it didn't install. BTNetprotect is in my opinion a poor product and can and does cause problems on some computers.
There are far better free products such as Avast Free and AVG Free.
AVG are getting a bit naughty these days though.
