Hello, Welcome! Rest assured, your problem will get taken take of.

When did this problem arise? Did you install Windows yourself, or did it come with your machine?

Thanks,

Hmm, maybe spyware I would try and do a spyware search and virus scan. Have you tried running the installers as a Admin? Also try shutting down the computer and restarting, if the problem persists let us know

If I were you, I would put the install problem on the back burner and give priority to making sure there are no virus on the system

Is this a clean install and you're now trying to install basic programs. Or you had it installed long time and now, it just doesn't install anything anymore?

It seems a security issue. Login as a administrator(gud if u login as the default admin) and then run the installer from there. To enable the default admin in windows 7 follow the steps below,

Open command prompt and type in,

Quote:
net user administrator /active:yes
Now login as the admin and try. Once done, for security reasons, disable the admin account by,

Quote:
net user administrator /active:no
Let us know the results.
