I have been trying to install a new wifi usb3 adapter programme into my computer
However I get this message.
"User Account Control
This app has been blocked for your protection.
An Administrator has blocked you from running this app. for more information contact the administrator.
Program: DWA-182C1_v3.03b04.exe
Publisher : Not trusted
File Origin: CD/DVD
Program location: D:\setup\Setup\ DWA-182C1_v3.03b04.exe


The program is brand new right out of the box. I had to cut through the shrink wrap. It is a D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band USB Adapter. It comes with an installation CD. When I started it I got as far as Agreeing to the EULA and then the blocking message came up.

I went to the section on "Allow apps to communicate through Windows Firewall" and have tried to add this app (InstallScript Setup Launcher) to the list of allowable apps (Private). And I have tried switching off the firewall. But I still get the same blocking message. I am not a computer technician by any measure. But is there something obvious that I have missed.

Check your account settings..... are you a member of the local administrator's group?
Are you running some third party security suite?
Have you set the UAC (User Account Control) settings too high?
