from the Google product forums:
the problem lies with GoogleUpdate.exe, its either a bad download, corrupt file or whatnot

so the solution is to just delete Google Update (it's not necessary to delete registry or any other info)
follow these steps (it's just a copy paste from "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed." - Chrome Help which is a related problem in my case)

# Go to Start menu > Run.
# Enter one of the following directories in the text field, depending on your operating system:

* Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\
* Windows Vista: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\

# Click OK.

once in that folder locate and delete `Update` Folder and you are done

now run the installer again and you will be able to install.
