Hi,

Do you have any Anti-virus application installed on the computer?

Adding to the valuable suggestions of Andrre DE Costa, I would also suggest you to go through the steps mentioned in the link and check.

Method 1:

I would suggest you to disable the anti-virus and then try the steps mentioned below.

NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

Error Code 57E is related to Permissions issues. Please visit the link mentioned below for the resolutions. Hope this may resolve your issues.
