Poblem installing Nectar toolbar (firefox and IE)

I have been trying install the Nectar Toolbar - at the last stage of the install I see what looks like a windows message. I am logged in as admin and authorise the installation when asked.
"An attempt to install a browser toolbar/ extension was blocked" there is also (if you are quick a settings link)
On the settings link I can tick to allow it, which I do, but it still wont activate
It is listed in the explorer extensions list - two entries Nectar Toolbar and Nectar BHO
When I highlight the Toolbar entry and click enable, there is no error message but only the BHO gets enabled and no matter how many times I try it stays disabled.
I have checked with Avast support who say it is a windows message but I cant find anywhere in windows 8 or browser settings to change anything. Shortly before I installed the Roboform Toolbar successfully so it is not a genereal tool bar issue. The same toolbar installed fine in W7and IE9
