Can't install programs

Hello, earlier today I reformated my computer and re-installed windows 7 after it beging a dick. So now after two boots I still can't install any kind of programs. I can't even change stuff in C:/ drive as everything is write protected and admins doesn't have the right to do anything.

Did you clean install (format)? Did you move the HD from one computer to another?

Have you tried going into My Computer, right clicking the C drive, opening properties and changing permissions around? I've had a similar issue in the past with Vista (Before Windows 7 was released), and the two OSes are quite similar as far as permissions go.

Certain programs will not install
This applies to my Acer Aspire netbook running W7 Starter. When attempting to install TeamViewer (and some other apps), I get this message: "A required privilege is not held by the client" Is this a limitation imposed by W7 or, perhaps, Avast confining it to Sandbox?
