I take it the problem did not disappear?

Some XP programs block executables they do not know. these programs are known to a lot of people as Personal Firewalls. I cannot tell your level of computer experience, nor are you a regular, so I try to keep it simple.

Indeed firewalls do not block local programs from executing.

If you still have the same problem, try launching the install.exe from the win32 install directory (I think - no Windows here...)

Search the archives - this is not the first time this has been discussed here, generally, but seems new for 11g.
