Hi keshav37a, try downloading again but without DAP. DAP may have caused the corruption

I've just tested this link from cnet.com
http://download.cnet.com/3001-.....b749c4f2ef
And it installed ok
Edit; you will have to close all other security software for it to install

You might also try installing in safe mode if you still have a problem after Mike's suggestion.
