Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Windows Installer freezes for a long time

I can open the installation program, but when i press install,the progress bar freezes for more than 10 minutes, then at some times,it moves.
It takes much time (>20 minutes) to install ESET Smart Security 6 beta but still failed.
I looked up the log and find that it has errors.
MarkOneNeededPackage: RegOpenKey failed with error 2
Any ideas? The complete log is here

Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.
Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?
