    Hi...........,

    Above friends has suggested you well.
    Rather i will recommend you that firstly make sure that device is free from virus.
    Device must not have any virus issue in it.
    Now also make sure that device has no installed defects.

    Restart the system on need.
    Do not install any unknown item.
    Also suggest to have a antivirus updated.

    Thanks

    The situation might arise out of various conditions .

    You should try to CLEAN BOOT to see if anything changes.
    Press Winkey+R and in the RUN box type msconfig, press ENTER.
    In the configuration option click BOOT and uncheck Safe Boot option.
    In GENERAL select Selective Startup and uncheck Load Startup Items
    In SERVICES option select Hide all Microsoft Services, and select Disable All.
    In STARTUP option, open Task Manager and disable all tasks one by one.

    Exit after finishing this and this is a Safe Boot process, reboot to boot in this mode and check if you can install programs without problem. After successfull installation get back to normal boot by doing the same process backward.

    Check your antivirus and firewall settings and disable for the time being and install.
    Dont forget to activate them later.
