✔ Best Answer
I have seen this issue before, sometimes if there was a previous game installation which either had not installed properly causing conflict or uninstall doing the same can sometimes be the problem. Do a search for the game file or the company name that makes the game and then also check the registry as well. I have found in the above mentioned case that when everything is completely eliminated from the system only in conjunction with that particular game being careful not to delete anything otherwise and then the system restarted that you should then be able to install the game properly. Also some games do not like other programs, virus scanners, etc running in the background during installation may prevent certain files in the game from being installed possibly detecting it as false positive malware and may also be part of the issue. You may also want to disconnect from the internet before turning off any security programs as well unless its a game that requires the internet.
