Re: FTM 2011 installs but won't open

Do you know anything about 'BigFix'? I thought it might be part of my security system, but it's not listed under Security in the Control Panel. I don't know what it's for.

The reason I ask, when I did the FTM 2011 installation using my second User Account, the BigFix icon started flashing - it's on the bar at the bottom of the screen, but it is usually hidden.

I read that if something is going on in the background, any installation might be affected. I was wondering if this BigFix could be causing the problems I'm having with the FTM 2011 installation.

I wouldn't want to uninstall BigFix if it is needed by some other program, but if it's not needed anywhere, especially by security, could I uninstall it?

I have no idea when it first appeared on my computer, but I did switch from Norton to Microsoft Security Essentials some time ago. Jo
