I ran AVG antivirus with the latest database on my computer and it came out clean. I also ran Giant Antispyware and Tauscan, and it came out clean with them, too. I have no problems with any other programs on my computer except this one, where a virus is detected on execution of setup.exe.
Without examining all of the settings for AVG, I would venture to say that it is set, on your computer, to examine running applications for viruses. And if advanced heuristics are configured, it is most likely treating the installation as a virus because of the large amount of data that the setup.exe process is copying to your hard drive. So, in a way, it is doing what you want it to do.
In summary, turn off your antivirus software during the installation. After the installation completes, you can turn antivirus scanning back on.
