Windows 7: Problem installing certain programs

Problem installing certain programs

Hello all,
I have win7 64 hp as a clean install on my laptop and I love it. My only issue is it will not let me install the following programs: adobe reader 9.0, Java 6.0 runetime for win64 and blackberry desktop software.
They get the same error message which I have attached to this post. I have ran the windows installer cleanup program with no change. I also tried installing these on a fresh install of win7 with no change. I tried administrator mode and compatability mode.

IF anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

These install find on my Dell desktop, so it has to be an issue with my Acer laptop.

Not to threadjack, but I have an Adobe install issue too. A couple of CS4 progs installed just fine but Photoshop CS3 keeps failing.

It looks to the C: drive and computes insufficient install space - but that is not where I want it to go. When I browse to a drive with gobs of room I keep getting the same error.

It was previously installed just fine under XP. I have checked C: and there is no Adobe installation there that can be confusing matters.
