Software Installation Stops When Trying To Create Start Menu Folder

My computer stops during creation of start menu folders and/or shortcuts. I have to go into explorer and go to start menu (I have ownership) and take ownership of the installation folder, subfolders and shortcuts. Anyone have any ideas as to what is going on that I have to take these unnecessay steps? i get error 1909, could not create shortcut. verify installation folder exists

Are you admin and check your settings in the Control Panel.

I am admin, which CP settings exactly are you talking about?

Error 1909 cannot create shortcut

This happens on any software installs and I have to manually go to Program Data/microsoft/windows/start menu (which I have ownership) and find the install folder and take ownership and then it will continue until "cannot create shortcut" might appear as well. UAC is off, Comodo Internet Security is "safe". Thx for any help anyone might have suggestions.

I have that program installed and really like it. My problem is though is that software installs stop, probably due to admin problems or something of that nature, because the error 1909 stops installations when trying to access Program Data folder. I took ownership of that and still the problem persists. I don't know what else to do so I was hoping someone here could help. Thx for ur reply tho!
