Please follow Buttons' instructions as it looks like he's onto it, but I'd also ask that you try moving the file to another location and try running it from there, such as your desktop or documents folder, or even the root of C: to see if that makes a difference. If it does, then it could be a permissions issue with your Downloads folder.

Also verify that you don't have any firewall, HIPS or sandboxing software that might be preventing any activity being performed or attempted by the installers.

Yep, running it from the Windows folder or a subfolder of it (SysWOW64) could have done something, as exe's do run with higher privileges there I believe or it could have been the uninstaller, though I believe all of the current uninstallers call the same commands so it shouldn't make a difference (I typically use Programs and Features first, then run the latest uninstaller, all with my browser closed, then install the latest version).

Kaspersky has a sandbox, and if you're using KIS, especially with the settings cranked up, it can be quite hindering. I use KAV so I don't generally encounter any such issues as it doesn't have as many HIPS like features like KIS does (which I'm guessing is what you have).
