Right click the installer and select Run as administrator.

To put it simply, you are an administrator, not THE administrator.

Your Windows 7 system is THE administrator. You can get round the nag prompt or error by disabling UAC but this isn't advisable unless you are confident in what you do.

HTH.

GoTo Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Action Center then click on Change User Account Control Settings.

Drop the level of notification to suit your needs. Mine's set to Never notify.

No, you don't. Windows 7 doesn't work that way because it is not secure for YOU to work that way.

What do you mean it won't let you install it? What EXACT message are you getting? Please include screenshots.
