I need to install Matlab on a pc. Since internet access is not so good from my pc, I would like to use another computer only for downloading files. The problem is that when I run setup.exe in _temp_matlab_R2016b_win64\bin\win64 it asks for administrator privileges and I do not have them.

You must be a local administrator to install MATLAB. If you are not a local administrator, contact your system administrator for assistance.
Refer to this link that discusses the possible issues that might cause the MATLAB installation to fail:

He wasn't asking about installation. He asked about downloading. There is no reason for the download to require Admin access. It is just bad design on the part of Mathworks.
