Installer and ipoint.exe/itype.exe conflict

I'm trying to understand how the Windows 64-bit installer would be trying to modify files that my machine currently has locked by ipoint.exe (the mouse handler) and itype.exe (the keyboard handler).

The installer is asking if it's OK to terminate those two tasks so it can continue.

That makes me suspicious that the installer download (which came from the tortoisesvn links to sourceforge) may have been infected by a keylogger/mouselogger. Why else would an svn client need access to anything that a keyboard or mouse handler is using. I don't expect tortoise to be modifying any of my standard Windows library files.

Attempted to attach this screenshot but I guess I haven't been here long enough to be allowed:
