Either the disc or the optical drive is defective.
Try copying the disc, sometimes that helps and allows you to complete the install.
Also, you want to do a Clean Install, with format if you have a virus on the computer. A non destructive install will just leave the virus there to reinfect you again most of the tme.
See here: How to Reformat and Reinstall your Operating System
This means you need to save any data before you do the install.
