You are at the mercy of the Microsoft Installer here, I suspect the same behavior would
occur if you installed most any package.  This falls into that strange category where
Microsoft insists you close your programs before running an installer.

And yes, anti-spy/spam/viralware all tend to interfere with installations, but they should
not affect the apache installer in any particular manner.
