Hi Maddy, welcome to Windows 7 Support Forums.
Is your C:\ drive set using permissions?
Also I suggest you install visual basic using administrator option.

Run as Admin

Maddy, right click on installation.

Thanks for the replies. But the fact of the matter is that i am the administrator. As an administrator i think i should have all the permissions.
Also if i view the properties of Program Files(x86) folder it shows as a read only folder. I tried to uncheck that but it does not let me.
