I'm guessing the issue here is that your processor doesn't support Intel Virualisation or even if it support it, it's configured wrongly. Have a look at these links for fixes:

1) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16091677/intel-haxm-installation-error-this-computer-does-not-support-intel-virtualizat

2) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20019231/vt-not-supported-when-installing-haxm

Thank You , Found that my processor doesn't support

To save going through those questions just yet, if anyone is here knowing your CPU is supported and Intel VT is enabled in BIOS settings, try disabling Hyper-V: Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off > Uncheck Hyper-V. More than likely that's the reason.

I've just noticed this is tucked away at the end of Intel's installation guide under 'Tips and Tricks'; I only found after searching for 'Hyper-V' on that page. Terribly categorised if you ask me.
