"Right click" on the Icon that starts the new install program, and from the menu options choose "Run as Administrator". See what that does for you.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

✔ Best Answer
If it works after suggestion #1 but you have to do this every time, then:

Right click the icon > Properties > Shortcut tab > Advanced.

If you see an empty check box against "Run as administrator" then put a check in it and OK your way out. This only works if the icon is a "shortcut", although one can be made if necessary.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
