    Upgrade assistant blocked by antivirus


    Ok, so I'm really excited to finally upgrade my laptop. I went to download the upgrade assistant so I could uninstall and do any prep, etc., but it's getting blocked by my antivirus on both IE9 and Chrome.

    I think I might have a virus. Anyone have a guess?

    Disable the anti-virus and try again.
