Windows 7: Windows Live Movie Maker won't install

Windows Live Movie Maker won't install

I just purchased a new laptop with Windows 7. I used Windows live movie maker on my old laptop which was Windows Vista. I've tried several times to install and each time it seems to be installing, though it takes a very long time but then when I look I find the installation has failed. One thing I did do when I got this laptop was use Windows Easy Transfer software to move my files over onto this machine. I don't know if something there could be affecting it since my old machine was running Vista? I have the same antivirus program (AVAST) that I did before. The machine does have some of Windows Live installed on it could this be this issue? Any thoughts?
