Installer has insufficient priviledge to modify

On my Win7 Home Basic, I had been installing various download programs. However, with Nokia PC Suite 7.1.60, I hit the above problem; "The Installer has insufficient priviledge to modity this file: "C:\Windows\Installer\." reported by the Nokia PC Suite installer. Yes, a 'dot' file in the directory !!

I tried running as administrator. I also tried changing the ownership to administrator, but no joy.

Can you gurus made anything out of this?
