you can try running the install file as admin. Just right click and hit "run as administrator"

that is assuming you haven't tried that. Windows firewall have been said to affect that as well.

Any time I've had this issue rebooting to Safe Mode w/ Networking has solved it for me (to do this, mash on the F8 key just before the Windows logo comes up on reboot) .

Start the update from Safe Mode w/ Networking, once it gets past Updating Setup Files, reboot back to normal and it should work to get the actual patch.

updating setup files

Getting stuck on this is an indicator that you need to close out of it, delete any files that it may have partially installed into program files, and do a complete reinstall.

It's an issue I had with the MoP beta, and my friend had with the D3 beta. Not sure what causes it.

Edit: Additionally, the bit about making sure you right click the installer and do "run as administrator" is HUGE. That usually resolves it, when done with a fresh install.
