Everytime I setup Oculus - "Restart Computer"

Everytime I install Oculus and run the set up, after it installs, it goes to this screen saying..

"Restart Computer

Sorry, we encountered an error during installation. Please restart your computer and try running Oculus Setup again. If you still experience issues, contact Oculus Support"

Has anyone else got this and what was your solution. It installs in C drive..

Hmmm... that means a lot of us are having this. I don't feel safe going into the computer code and editing it though, I feel like it might throw something else off. Does everyone have to do this?

It's fine to edit that part of the registry.  That part is only there because of the first install attempt.  The highlighted directory below shows which folder to right click.

Press Windows Key + R
Type regedit
Click the > by HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
>SOFTWARE
>WOW6432Node
Right click Oculus VR, LLC and click permissions

Click reorder
click ok on the next dialog box that pops up.
Try installing again.

Is your firewall disabled? If it is turn it on. Then try again.
