Mc Afee re-install - installation keeps stalling

Hi any help would be appreciated - decided to re-install Mc Afee after the real time scanning and safe search options kept turning themselves off as soon as i clicked to turn them on. The re-install keeps stalling at stage 3, any ideas?

Also ensure windows updates are fully updated as is Internet explorer as Mcafee uses the latter. Make sure all flash and such utilities are fully uo to date as well
