Try rightclicking the installer's .exe file to Run As Admin.

If this fails, type in Start search box "Command Prompt" then rightclick on the result to Run as Administrator, type sfc /scannow to check system file integrity.

Is this a factory pre-install, as many find a Win7 Installation DVD for their version to get a much cleaner install without the problems from factory bloatware and useless factory utilities? We can help you with this.

If you find an installer for your version, you can also run a Repair Install
