Such error occur because of several reasons others could not even be specific. One of the reason could be that the installation you are doing is being copied from a path or networking where the file exe.setup launch takes too long. It may also be that the installation is being run from a very deep level which results to many characters in the path name causing the error. To fix this kind of error follow this steps: Copy all the installing files from the network or source by either pressing ctrl+A or edit and select all. Then on your local hard drive get a folder created by right clicking on your desktop and the go to new the folder.

Paste by pressing ctrl+V of the file that you had copied earlier on. Then to run the installation locally double click on the setup.exe. If this does not fix your problem then there has to be a specific problem with your computer than will need troubleshooting visit this site to solve.

There may be more than one problems in this case one major case is that you have some virus in your computer. As you are getting the message that shows that some virus is causing this problem. So i will highly recommend you to get a antivirus program if you have already installed antivirus program then you need to run a full virus scan on your system. The second thing or cause is that you are coping some system files that can not be copied form the source. 

Third reason is that you are coping the files that are protected and are not able to copy form the user if you are on a network then check the network device and make sure it is fully functional and see that you are using a valid path and a valid network source. That is all i can say about your problem. I am sure after you go through these procedures you will be able to solve your problem.
