This occurs when an antivirus application is blocking Patch Manager from starting properly.


Disable the antivirus application. Refer to How do I uninstall antivirus or antispyware programs?

If the antivirus application is required, verify that the files and directories in Patch Manager Anti Virus Exclusions are excluded.
