    You probably have anti-virus / Anti malware or security suite thats stopping you installing.
    Disable it then run your installation then re-enable security

    under vista members of the admin group are not THE administrator,
    there should be an option to download this tool to your desktop, when u figure out how to do this, using right mouse button click on the tool and select "run as administrator" from the menu

    Thats prob because the account has not been set up to be "an administrator"
    is there another account which can be used to change it?
    if not you will have to activate the inbuilt "Administrator" account and go to control panel, users, to change its status.
