getting error after cloning a branch from bitbucket.

Hi Team,

I am cloning master branch from bitbucket. Then after showing message as 100% completed it gives me below error-

4 [main] sh 17520 fork: child -1 - CreateProcessW failed for 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\usr\bin\sh.exe', errno 13

C:\ Program Files (x86)\Git\mingw32/libexec/git-core\submodule:  fork: Permission denied

What can be the cause for this?
