Are you running the Installation as Run As Administrator?

Is a temp folder defined?

Check permissions

Restart server or workstation or computer

Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.

Check the folder owner and make sure it is not set to "trustedinstaller"

Did you tried to clear the temp files from your profile? Is AV installed on the Windows 2008 servers?
