You started elevated command prompt and you have administartive rights. Then you start setup.exe which has automatically those right inherted.

When you run setup.exe normally as you did always.....press ctrl-alt-del and look if setup.exe is running under your username!! Do you see a UAC shield whwn you doubleclick setup.exe so does it ask for administrative rights?

right click setup.exe and do "run as adminstrator". Post back what happens

The executable is running under my name when I click on it normally as well as when I do 'Run as Administrator'. The same error happens both times. I also disabled UAC so there is no 'shield icon' on any executable.
(by the way this happens with all executables, I'm only using this one because mbam is already running atm)


Mbam found 9 objects but they weren't any harmful things (Hiren's, Photoshop stuff).

I thought about running TFC but I remembered that it will close all running applications, and since I'm currently running via remote, it will close that as well. I don't want to do that just yet.

Apparently DefianceSetup.exe is not digitally signed ... Setup.exe Details. Is this file safe? Check the directory

That's not the only executable I've tried...What would digitally signed have to do with Access Permissions? I mean it is a commonality between the three files posted below but why?

Mbam


Itunes


TeamSpeak


Weird thing I noticed is MSE seemed to work properly though?

Where are you saving your downloads?

E:\Downloads. I relocated the C:\Downloads to that location. Never had an issue before. I never store any personal Documents stuff on my C:\ drive anymore.

EDIT:

SFC has scanned some corrupted files that it cannot repair:

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.
Ran this and still nothing...About to check Startup Repair.

EDIT:

Startup Repair failed.

Try to create a fresh new account. Logon to it and check if it has same problems. You can delete that account afterwards (including its files). Delete from another account

Isn't that the same thing? SFC found some corrupted file which I posted a few posts up. Thought a Startup Repair would fix it, but it said that it cannot fix some files (with an error that I thought wouldn't help). I will grab that error tonight.

I did enable the built-in Administrator account and still had the same issue. I will try to create another account tonight as well. Should I make it an admin or just a Standard user?

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.
