Hello Djscy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you are part of a domain, then you will have to check with the domain administrator for permission to install these instead. You will not be able to bypass it.

If not, then you might check to see if there may have been a rule set in AppLocker to not install these types of programs.

AppLocker - Create New Rules

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You said " i cant deactivated uac or i cant seem to figure it out".

The easiest way I know is to click on Start then type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Tools tab.
Select Change Uac Settings then click the Launch button.
Move the slider all the way to the bottom.
Reboot and UAC will be disabled.

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

DJscy,

Oops, I missed that you had Home Premium. Sorry about that.

If you would post back a screenshot of your registry (regedit) at the Explorer key locations below showing all of the right pane of them. I'll take a look to see if there may be a entry there that is responsible for not allowing you to install the programs.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

DJ,

You do not have anything in these locations that would prevent you from installing these files, but it looks like you have this solved for .msi files anyways now.


The iTune installation is a completely different issue, but I'm not familiar with it though.

If you have Bonjour installed, deactivate it from the system configuration. Also set it as 'disabled' in Services. Reboot and see if you can install iTunes now.
