2014-04-13 09:52:31 +0200 asked a question Windows 8.1 does not allow install of LibreOffice 4.1.5 or 4.2.2

Hi there, caught a nasty trojan inside one of Googles Extensions for the Chrome Navigator. Had LibreOffice (4.1.5 Spanish Version, 84-bit) installed and running perfectly. Could identify the troubling extension but not exterminate the annoing bastard.

Decided to clean up the machine completely Restore factory defaults (Win 8), all the way up to all the updates 'til Win 8.1, also with all it´s updates. The machine is a Samsung Notebook NP3050, Core i5, 6GB Ram, 500GB HD,

When it came to re-install LibreOffice, went to your site, downloaded version 4.1.5, Language Spanish with it's Helpfile. Download O.K. But trying to install the package, Windows Smart Screen wouldn´t let me. First "unknown Editor" error, trying to override, cannot install this package.

Put Smart Screen on hold with practically the same result.

Downloaded vers. 4.2.2 with it's Help, exactly the same result.

Now, a friend of mine went tru the same process, but on a Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite- AMD x64 x4 CPU, 4GB RAM and everything went fine.

Any ideas or suggestions what I'm doing wrong here? Wouldn't like to go tru the whole process again, pretty stressy.

Thanks in advance for your help and kind assistance. Regards
