If you want to enable the feature, you need to install additional components (drivers). To do so, proceed through the steps listed below:
Before you start enabling the feature you need, make sure you do not have another anti-virus software installed on your PC, as running two antivirus programs at the same time may cause serious conflicts and errors. If there is any incompatible software, remove it.
1. Single click the yellow slider.
2. You will get the similar window below. Click OK.
3. If prompted by UAC, click Yes to proceed.
4. Wait until installation is completed.
