When I start my PC sometimes I get the following error message, (GPU-Z could not install Driver/The specified service has been marked for deletion) I click OK and error box disappears. then another box appears repeating this first message. The whole time GPU-Z shows itself running in the task bar. This error does not always show every time I start my PC, just the majority of the time.

You list 2 OS versions - does the issue happen in both of those, or just 1? :) Which one?

the only protection I have is windows defender, as stated it does not happen everytime I start PC so I am not worried about a virus, not yet anyway.

Windows Defender should be harmless, i.e. it should usually not block any GPU-Z files this way.
Some other antivirus programs might but you say you do not use any so issue is probably elsewhere. :)

What version number is this Windows 10 OS, please? Such as - version 1803, 1809, 1903, 1909/etc.
Is it Home, Pro, or Enterprise version? Insider Preview, or RTM/Stable? :)

What about you run it with right click > run as administrator

Maybe your account is limited to installing any?
Or try to copy the app to my document or somewhere in your pc and try to run that from there
