    I don't know if this is the right place for it all, but yeah.

    My PC won't let me install games or programs of any kind, I've been trying to install FM2011 and iTunes for quite a while now and it's not working.

    Any idea on how to fix this? Does it have something to do with firewalls or Windows Security, because that seems to pop up everywhere?

    I try installing and it suddenly stops. That's all I've got. Sometimes it says that "Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened."

    That's all I've got

    I know this is going to sound extremely obvious but its a mistake that catches out alot of people. Now, have you actually turned the PC on?
