threat discovered during installation

I had to reinstall yesterday due to a bad update. During installation it stopped and said threat detected cannot complete installation. It then had a box next, when I clicked on it, it went back to installing. Now I seem to have an incomplete installation. I have a big red X on the security center and it says my computer and files are not protected. When I clicked on the fix button it said one or more problem require your response, Well DUH!!!!!
I thought if I ran a scan it might fix the problem, then I discover I CAN'T scan because that option doesn't exist.
Short of yet another uninstall is there any way to fix this?? I ran the VT and it said every thing was working fine, so much for that eh.
