If you can download other things I would give Malwarebytes a run to see if it finds any problems.

Or maybe install this and see if that works.

Worth a read through if none of the above works.

Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services - scroll down to find Windows Installer - make sure it is running - if not set it to Automatic and restart the service.

Open Command Prompt and run sfc/ scannow to check your files

Also have a read here link text and make sure you have the latest Service Pack installed - SP3

Sounds to me that you may have malware. Use another computer to download SAS portable to a flash drive. Disconnect your PC from internet and start in safe mode. Run the scanner. See what it lists.

Once you clear the bug then the latest installer is, here

If SAS portable doesn't resolve it you might have a rootkit infection.

Sophos. Also run in safe mode without internet connection.
