See if re-assigning "Group Policy" helps resolve the problem ...

How do I "re-assign" it?

I can create the file, but it just keeps asking for the next file in the process...or at least it says it's trying to create a file with a different name?

Please download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

Now tell me if you have Admin Rights back.

It's trying to create a .tmp file not a folder. I can try creating one to see what happens.

You might want to look into running a SFC /Scannow to see if any of your files are messed up.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Repair Install
No I don't remember. I think it was some .dll though. I will perform a SFC tonight. Thanks
It tries to create a folder!!

A folder named 'is-ILH80.tmp'?

I also didn't get a chance to try SFC lastnight...

I hope I won't have any issues like I did with TDSSkiller. Even though it would run it would produce some driver errors and didn't seem to work. But I will find out tonight because this sounds promising!

Is looks like it tries to create that folder.

You're very sure you are the owner of temp folder and have "full control" permissions?

You saw the screenshots. I have no problem creating, modifying, deleting anything in the temp folder. It seems that the executable thinks otherwise! Even when I attempt to change the temp location.

I can double check though.

Holy shit that worked! But what does that mean? Am I going to have to put everything I want to install into a folder like this? I attempted to use CMD to run an executable in my E:\Downloads folder but produced the same error. So maybe my permissions in other locations don't allow me to modify?

I'm going to try that Temp File Cleaner after I finish this Mbam scan.

Denied Admin Account Pass ?
Most, if not all of the time, I'm logged into Win7 as a standard user. If I need to run a program as a Admin, I right click on the program and choose "run as administrator". I'm not getting prompt for the password, which is denying programs from installing even after rebooting.
