    Have you tried to "Run as administrator"?

    Also,if you've gotten far enough into the installation,Spybot will show you a Select Components screen.Download Updates Immediately is pre-checked by default.Try unchecking that,and see if Spybot installs okay after that.

    If Spybot does install after that,you'll need to install updates before your first scan.You can try checking for updates within the Spybot program,or if that doesn't work,you can download detection updates manually from the Spybot page:
    Detection updates© 2012-05-09 - product description

    md5: B5A2C23C6F565F6BD8672A4B03A293B7

    This updates the detection rules. Only needed if you do not want to use the update function integrated into Spybot-S&D
