Windows 7: Windows 7 Admin Permission problems, cannot install

Windows 7 Admin Permission problems, cannot install

Just did a new clean install of W7 Home Premium 64-bit with SP1. Installed all MS updates.
Went to install a virus program and both that I tried (Avira and MS Security Essentials) fail to install. The MSE only provided an obscure error code. Avira comes up stating Local Admin Rights required.

My account is listed as having admin rights.
I tried the Run as Admin, same result.
I rebooted into safe mode, same result.
I enabled the Full Adminstrator account and logged in there. Same result.
Looking in Properties (for Avira)/Security/Advanced it shows full control, and I am THE owner of this file.

would love some help getting this fixed
