My intel appup (windows 8.1) wont start, even after uninstalling and redownloading.

The program goes to open and gives me error/support code 3100, but the option to email an intel advisor isnt currently working at the moment so thought id best ask here to see if theres anything i can do.

Thanks in advance,

    The error code happens when your antivirus software is not allowing the Intel AppUp(R) center client  to properly install on your computer.
