Hello! I am on a windows PC. I went to download geekbench so I could compare scores with a different computer and see if I need to upgrade. I tried downloading it and Microsoft Edge said it couldn't finish downloading it. I discard the message and the installer. Windows defender flips and thinks it is virus, I let the installer run, click yes to letting it change my PC, then a error come up saying the installation doesn't work. My windows edition is Windows 10 Home, I have a Intel Core i5 5200U, 8 gigabytes of ram, and a 1 terabyte herd disk drive. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for posting about this. Are you downloading Geekbench 4 directly from the Geekbench website ( If so, are you able to try using a different browser?
