Most often 'new PC's' come with an Anti Virus "pre-installed" which needs to be removed, preferably with venders Removal Tool, BEFORE installing Avast which Bob3160 was referring too. :)

There is no any other anti viruses only Windows defender,
I also tried after disabling Windows defender ,The problem is repeated.
 And i also tried with offline installer but the setup could not be completed,an error is returning while initiating set up.

The message is "The installer unable to initialize early Avast self-defence with error 0x00000241! Aborting!"

The screenshot of error is attached.
