This typically occurs if you are behind a proxy server, but I am not sure if that is the case for you.
To resolve this behavior, you must connect to the Internet or turn off the Update Root Certificates component.
To turn off the Update Root Certificates component, follow these steps:
1. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
3. Click to clear the Update Root Certificates check box, and then continue with the Windows Components Wizard.
