Error:Administrator policies to prevent installation

I'm having trouble installing iTunes 9 on my computer. I'm able to open the executable and the installation goes fine, and then there's an error message that reads "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation." I've tried changing my security settings, and have even stooped so low as to trying to get in touch with apple (which turned out to be a massive fail considering that I couldn't even create a forum account). I've already tried editing the registry. I would be very grateful to anyone who can help me out on this one, I really need to sync my iPod! Thanks, Isaac.

Um log on as admin, if that doesnt work go into gpedit and find the setting that applies to app installation and change it back to default

I haven't changed anything in gpedi, so there's really no default to go back to. Do you know if there's another solution? There's also another error, "A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file: C:/Users/Isaac/AppData/local/Temp/ IX113.TMP/AppSupport.msi" The installation continues after I press okay. Could this be part of the problem?
