Click start then run, type services.msc then press OK / enter

Look for cryptographic service, double click it, check it is started and the start up type is set to automatic, click apply and reboot

Check to see if anything is in the folder you are extracting it to, if set up is there, double click it

Try extracting to C:\Windows\Temp

Or

Click start then run, type meconfig then press enter, click start up, click disable all, click apply and reboot

Tick do not start the configuration utility

Double click the set up file

If it extracts and installs

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, put the dot in normal start up, click apply, reboot

Check the firewall and antivirus are running
