Windows 7 Ultimate x64

With UAC enabled you might try this with a .MSI file:
  • Open a CMD prompt in Elevated Mode
  • drag the MSI install file into the CMD prompt

If that doesn't do it add the /a switch to the command line.

MSI files do not have a right click option to run as Administrator

Hope this helps

BSOD Nightmare!
Hey everyone! I've been getting BSOD's ever since last week and it's been a real annoyance. I really don't know what prompted these BSOD's; perhaps it had something to do with my weekly anti-virus/spyware updates. I've even taken desperate measures and re-installed (clean install, by the way)...
