Default HWiNFO64 Cannot Install Driver

Hey guys, I've looked around google and can quite find a solution to this.
I installed HWiNFO64 and when I try to run it (as administrator or not) I get this error
"Cannot install the HWiNFO driver ! Check user rights and possible antivirus filters"

Im only using windows defender on windows 10 and added it to the allowed apps in the firewall settings.
I've done as suggested in the HWiNFO forum to unchecked persistent driver, and It wont the uninstall driver option is grayed out.

Has anyone here had the same problem and found a solution?
I have it running on another pc on windows 10 with no problems...

No clue why, but turning off my thermaltake RGB software fixed it...

Do you know anyway of modifying it so they both work?

You'd be better off asking @ https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/

Martin is generally quite responsive.
