Hello, here is the Setup Error log:

I stopped the antivirus software, but still cant Install Atom?

Downloaded the installer today.

Is it something from my side…

Look at the file exists error. Perhaps existing files are tripping up. Did you try deleting the app-0.184.0 folder and attempting the installation again? Have you been able to use 0.182 version successfully? How about, sufficient space in your system.
