1. Try shutting down any running processes/programs before installing

2. Reboot your PC & try again

Everything seems to be going to plan until it says that it is creating a restore point and thne up come sthe error message.

Rather than downloading to install at a later time have you tried a direct download-install?

i.e., "To start the installation immediately, click Open or Run this program from its current location."
