I purchased BullGuard today via Amazon. After downloading the manager, the installation file was downloaded. I started the installation and since four - five hours, "Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable Package (x64)...." is getting installed. I understand that there are several packages to be installed within Visual C++ but even an OS installation doesn't take this long. I am trying to install this AV on Windows 7 ultimate, with C2D Processor and 8GB RAM. 

I never faced any issue with my previous AV for three years, and the AV from BullGuard is giving issues starting from the installation. Don't know what'll happen in future! I am repenting this purchase already.

Hello Amit and welcome to our forum!

I suspect the redistributable package is having issues installing. Try to install the Visual C++ Redistributable package you are missing directly from Microsoft. BullGuard will detect you have it and use it.

Here you have a list with all Visual C++Redistributable packages on Microsoft official page, in case you are missing other packages as well:

Note: You need to scroll down the page to see the full list of packages and their download links.
