Windows 7: Nothing Installs on Windows 7

Nothing Installs on Windows 7

I recently got a new laptop running Windows 7 and I've been trying to download and install a few things. The programs/software downloads fine, but when I run the installation wizard, after a few moments, I either get an error message saying the installer doesn't have access to the folder or it doesn't exist, or the installer just dissapears. I've even tried taking control over the program folders. These programs would download on Vista, so I don't know what's wrong. I am the full administrator and the sofftware I'm downloading IS made for Windows 7 64-Bit.
e.g. HP Deskjet F340 Full Driver
Adobe Reader
