setup.exe aborts "Install from Local Directory" II part


As an addition to the message from yesterday (see below), I downloaded
the setup-2.418.exe file from and I get
this time the following message:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Download

abnormal program termination

On the othe hand the content of both the setup.log and the
setup.log.full are identical and were not changed since yesterday:

2003/10/28 16:01:08 Starting cygwin install, version 2.416
2003/10/28 16:01:08 Current Directory: c:\Documents and
Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Download Files\cygwin
2003/10/28 16:01:08 Changing gid to Users
2003/10/28 16:01:08 Could not open service McShield for query, start and
stop. McAfee may not be installed, or we don't have access.
2003/10/28 16:01:24 Ending cygwin install

Any help woudl be appreciated
