jdogga - have you had a chance to check your permissions on the folder and files?

Holy crap in a basket, you guys fixed it... it was a permissions issue.
I granted System to the software folder and pushed it down to all files/folders, and the install went fine!!

update for me: ImageResizer (the one jdogga posted) works flawlessly.
I had also downloaded ESET Antivirus and (.msi as well) and that worked.
Only problem seems to be the ESET Smart Security.

here is how it looks like:

Problem solved as well!
Downloaded the file through Mozilla Firefox rather than Google Chrome and it worked.
I guess there was something wrong with the installation through Chrome.
Thanks everyone for all your help.
