Windows 7 writing issues - Cannot install programs

Hi,
I recently tried to install 'pfport checker' and it failed on multiple attempts, then I installed it on an external HDD and it worked successfully. The error was something along the lines of 'disk writing error, please retry'. I thought it was just the software but after trying to install some other software it comes up with errors. On a previous Windows installation it worked. I assume it is a disk writing error.

Error: 'Can't write. C:\Windows\syswow64\drivers\anyDVD.sys.tmp'

That is an example of the issue.

Any ideas? Thanks

Did you try to install as Administrator? Since you write to Windows directory I don't think normal Windows account can do that.

Yes, I can't start the installation without saying yes to UAC.

When you install I am sure it copies files to the HDD and Windows has protection issues. I am installing as administrator using the installer program provided.
