This error is fundamentally pretty simple: Access denied creating a file.
It means you were unable to create a file, write to a file, read a file, or possibly a registry entry but most likely is exactly what it says, you were unable to create a file. This could be caused by file system corruption, permission issues, using a limited user account, anti-virus software, or other weird things that might be blocking the installation pocess from doing what it needs to do.
First, make sure of the obvious - Is there any security software on your computer that would be blocking the installation? Disable it and try again. Second, the other obvious thing - make sure you are logged in as an administrator and not logged in as a limited user account. With those things being checked, if it still fails to install then read on.
Sometimes I would use a program like Process Monitor to monitor the actions of the installer and see exactly what it couldn't write to. However, this is really complicated and you need to know what you are looking at.
Instead, you should use a perfectly safe, albeit "shotgun" approach to fixing permission issues in both your file system and registry. Use this automatic Microsoft fix to reset your registry and file permissions: http://go.microsoft....?linkid=9730795
Just run the automated fix it tool that you will download directly from Microsoft and let it do its job. For those that are curious what this is doing you can read here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949377 -- Its a fix for a service pack 3 installation error, but it applies in your case.
After you run the tool, your problem will most likely be resolved - otherwise its almost certainly another program on your computer blocking the installation.
