H&R block Installshield error 1152

As if tax time weren't annoying enough....

I've completed my federal return using H&R block software. I went to download the state program and I'm hit with Installshied error 1152: can't extract the installer package from the temp folder.

I tried restarting the program and rebooting. Upon the restart, it found an update to the federal program -- and I get the same error trying to install it.

I've tried to change the settings on my temp folder because it claims that it's read only. I am unable to get rid of the read-only mark. It returns every time I erase it.

When I try to run the installer from the temp folder, I get an error saying "The wizard was interrupted befor H&R block could be completely installed. Your system has not been modified. Please run the installation again."

Google suggested clearing out space on the C: drive but I have 8GB free, so I know that's not the problem. Do you think I downloaded a corrupt installer? If so, how could I re-download it?

Disable your Antivirus while you install. Also right click on the Install File and choose Run As Administrator.

Thanks for the help.

My guess is I got a bad download. I deleted the state file and redownloaded it and wouldn't you know....
