Basically that usually means one of these thing is going in your PC.

1) That plugin is active in memory and can;t be written over.

2) The plugin has been marked read-only for some reason

3) Your Anti-virus software hates this plugin [clear all blocked SL files from your AV list]

4) The installation image you DL'd is corrupted. [Try DLing a new copy.]
