Try running the installer with administrative rights. Right-click on the program and select Run as Administrator.

Try taking ownership of the file.

It seems to be a permissions issue, but it may be something a little bigger.

Maybe you can try this:
Start pc in safe mode
Delete the file oleaut32.dl in folder Windows\system32\
Download VBRUN60.exe from MS
Run the file and reboot

Report back if this helped you!
