Come offline. Disable AV and try again

If Jackcoms way does not work for you,try this....
Uninstall Defender,download from here click here save to my documents or somewhere you can find easily,Log off the net and make sure you have no other apps open then reinstall.
It may be possibly the download has been corrupted.

Hope this helps

I take it you have sp2 installed !

click Start, click Run, type Msiexec /x {A5CC2A09-E9D3-49EC-923D-03874BBD4C2C}, and then click OK.

Best to copy from Msi to} and then paste into your run box.Not to sure if this will work when the program has not installed.

This is a shot in the dark as this has been a common problem in the past,but i thought this had been resolved by MS.

Have you tried installing with your firewall turned off ? Make sure you are logged off the net if you turn off the firewall.
