Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2918614)

Uninstall this update, hide it, reboot and....problem fixed. Now try to re-install your software. I had the same problem with Java and some other programs. Got this fix from another site with people who had the same problems.

This simply means that the directory that you want the program to go to already exists. So when going through the installer of the program change where the file goes.
