Ok so it looks to me as though you have NTFS compression switched on your C drive -the installer does not like this.
For the root directory that the installer complains about (for instance in the screen shot one is C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server) you should ensure that you turn off compression. Simply right click the directory in question and clear the compression checkbox.
