Can you tell us exactly what's the error (or post a screenshot)?

Mmh.... You are on Windows 10? I have absolutely no direct experience with that. As far as I've managed to understand that Defender Smartscreen is the default antivirus. I have found this guide on how to temporarily disable it BUT you should check these things before to do that:
- that you have another antivirus active (no antivirus bundled with any operative system is foolproof....)
- that you've downloaded the patch from Patches Scrolls or ModDB (and it downloaded perfectly)
- that you are offline

PLUS I WANT TO SAY THIS: I'M NO EXPERT IN THIS THINGS, IF SOMEONE IN THIS THREAD CAN CONFIRM WHAT I COPIED AND PASTED DOWN HERE IS CORRECT IS REALLY HELPFUL, THANKY :)

Said that, here's the guide:

Quote
How to disable Windows Defender temporarily:

  •     Open Windows Defender Security Center.
  •     Click on Virus & threat protection.
  •     Click the Virus & threat protection settings option.
  •     Turn off the Real-time protection toggle switch.

However, because this is a temporary solution, the next time you restart your computer Windows Defender Antivirus will re-enable automatically on your machine (although you should check it manually, repeat points 1-3 then check if the switch is back on).

Weird! I use Microsoft Security Essentials on my Windows 7 PCs and never had an issue with the patch...

I had a similar problem. Just click on "more details", and another menu appears. Here, you can select "execute it anyways"

Problem was solved for me.

Windows 10 is a pain in the ass. When windows 7 will be terminated as xp I'll switch to linux

I looked at the blue window that popped up, and I didn't see a place for 'more details' should I just go on with working around it?

Also in the Virus and Threat Protection place, I don't see where I can toggle off Windows Defender? It only has the option to turn of Periodic scanning sooo am lost.

I also use Windows 10. So far I have never had this error message.

@Wesp5:
Did you change something on the installer?

I don't think so, it does the usual stuff. Maybe some additional features are active on her Defender, like internet control? I know that Avast blocks The Patches Scrolls as it deems it too small and unknown. Maybe the W10 defender thinks similar?

Reverse to archive non-installer patch?

No way! This rarely happens, like maybe three or four people out of thousands of downloads. Also it wouldn't probably help with a badly setup antivirus program anyway, as it would stop the patch itself from working...

It was a dumb question (I should have add this :razz:)
But as we are in the subject, some dumber questions: what does changes between an installer vs an archive (apart the obvious advance of automatically point the patch to the right place)? Would help an archive and inside a little program who takes the files in the archive and install them? Or one of those installers who can be opened with winzip/winrar/7zip/whatever and give the chance of a manual installation and/or retrieve one single file?

Installers are most of the time much better compressed, like a solid archive, so there is no way to extract single files.
