Linux mint question


i have noticed that when i try to install the linux mint under windows 7, using wubie it downoads another iso file called lucid64bit gets to 10% then comes up with a can't find the executable arror.
the wubie file stays in the installed programs in windows but after that linus mint won't work at all.
do i have to disable kespearsky's internet suite before installing wubie of is there something else i'm missing?

Better to install after booting from cd/dvd/usb and not from within M$ windows.
