Windows 7: the system administrator has set policies preventing this installation

the system administrator has set policies preventing this installation

Hi i love widows 64 bit home premium. However, i keep getting this error message when trying to install pro tools 8. It installs fine until it gets to the part where it trys to install the hardware driver then i get this message. If i click contiunue the install continues but gives me several more of these messages. When the install is done the try and open protools and while its loading i get an error message that asks me to connect hardware. Im pretty sure the problem is that error message the say the administrator has set policies.... I looke at over 100 posts but most are for xp or vista and the others just did not work. I tried UAC and i tried running the install as an administrator. I am also logged in as admin. My windows also does not have local security settings. This seems to be a popular fix but i guess home premium does not offer this.

Please help im going crazy

This is a way to fix that issue:

Method 1:

1. Open Control Panel and go to Administrative Tools.

2. In Administrative tools open Local Security Policy.

3. In Local Security Policy right click Software Restriction Policies and click “New Software Restriction Policy”.

4. Now Left click on software restriction policies and in the right-hand window you should see enforcement.

5. Double-click on enforcement and set the policy to apply to “All users except Local administrator”

Apply the changes and check if you’re able to install.

What Anti-virus are you using? It may have blocked the installation.

2.Right-click on Command Prompt and select "Run As Administrator".
3.In the Command Prompt window, enter the following command:

icacls "c:\ProgramData" /T /C /grant administrators:F

give that a shot.
