I tried to install 'Emsisoft Internet Security' (fresh download from Emsisoft website) and it does not work. From Emsisoft I get the installation message: It is strongly recommended that you install the following hotfix prior to continuing the installation:

Following the link strangely Microsoft only sends this hotfix per email
I select from the 3 available options the correct one Product Windows 7/Windows Server2008 R2 SP1 Language All (Global) Platform x64 Fix name Fix499765
I offer my privacy to Microsoft because they only send the hotfix per email and get the download link:
It is a self-extracting zip file with the installation file caled "474557_intl_x64_zip.exe"
When run the file extracted is called "Windows6.1-KB2958399-x64.msu"
I find it strange that the fix number is not the KB number and the file to run is called Windows6.1, but I checked it several times and it should be right. When installing 'KB2958399' I get the Windows hotfix message:
the "Windows Update Standalone Installer" window says:
Windows update is not applicable to your computer.
So you end up with 'Emsisoft wanting to first install a KB2958399 hotfix' and this KB2958399 hotfix returns me it is 'not applicable'.
Meaning you cannot safely install Emsisoft Internet Security in windows 7 anymore? What is this? Any help or advice will be appreciated.
OS: fresh install of Windows 7 Professional SP1 with all necessary AND all suggested updates installed (which as you know takes many rounds).
No other antivirus or firewall present yet.
