Windows 7: Programs Will Not Install Win7 x64

Programs Will Not Install Win7 x64

Win7 Ultimate N x64 has been kicking my butt. Just about every time I install a new program, it has issues. I am logged in as the Administrator... all privileges I checked.

After install most of the time everything seems ok... Then I reboot... BAM - shortcuts in the Start>Programs>(specific program) are missing... Icons on the desktop go white... go into the tree structure and look in Programs or Programs x86 - programs are there. Can see the EXE files or SETUP - click and boom - get a permissions issue (access denied).

Have tried "right click - run as admin" - does not work
Have tried "right click - properties - change all permissions of install file" and "compatibility"

This happens on X32 or X64 designed programs...

In my folder structure there are a number of folders with the "Lock" icon on them... I am logged in as "Administrator" - can't figure out why these locks are on...

If you want to suggest "Perform a Clean Install" save your keystrokes - that is not productive as that has been tried 2 times previous... won't do that again as have giggered critical programs to run...

Thank you for your assistance... Dan

Installing programs that won't install on Win7 using Setup.exe
Looks like it is time to retire XP. I have some programs that I am quite attached to but they won't install on Win7 using the original disks presumably because the Win7 doesn't like the setup.exe. I have had to move my XP directories and sub directories to the Win7 machine. Since these are all...

Same programs on Xp and Win7 machines, no Flac on win7?
I use mainly Winamp for audio and VLC for video. I have music that I've played on my XP machine transferred onto my Win7 Machine, and it won't play on the Win7 machine. To my knowledge Winamp and VLC both should have flac playback. Kinda curious as to what's going on. :(
