Sounds as if you tried to download and run it all in one go. It is better to download it first an then run it after a successful download to do the install.

The download is ~30MB so make sure you are not running out of space on your system drive.

I also notice that you have non-ascii characters in your username, and that could be causing the install to fail. Therefore when you download it, do not put it on your desktop - instead put it somewhere else on your hard drive.

Simply installing Calibre should not slow things down.

When Calibre is running doing something (i.e. not simply loaded but idle) it can certainly affect performance as most of its tasks tend to be CPU intensive. Also it is quite heavy on RAM usage - I would not want to use Calibre on a system with less than 1GB of RAM although it would probably run on a 512MB system if you are not doing much else.
