Hi,
Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts, then click Turn User Account Control On or Off, then uncheck the box and reboot.
You can install it now.
Then turn UAC back on if you wish.
It's an annoying quirk of Vista, I'm afraid. My admin is the same as yours and I had this problem trying to immunize using Spybot, and have since realised I'm better off keeping it off, as I'm the only one who uses my machine :)

I cant install itunes on my computer, it downloads but when i click to open it, it says its unable to.


Enter http://www.apple.com/itunes in your address bar or conduct a search for "iTunes download" to find the link.


Click on the iTunes free download link. It is located on the right side of the page.

This will take you to the main download page for iTunes software.


Enter your email address and then click the box that is labeled "Download Now." This will bring up a box that asks if you would like to run or save the program.

Click whichever you like, but by clicking "run," the process will start automatically.


After the download is complete, click "run" again, as this will start the installation process.

If you have opted to save the program first, locate it in the directory you have chosen and double-click on the iTunes setup program.


Follow the installation prompts, including accepting the terms and conditions and indicating where you would like the directory to be created.


Continue to follow the steps included with the setup assistant.

This will allow you to customize the options, including assigning certain properties to files. You can play all your MP3s through the iTunes interface or set iTunes as your default audio player.


Installing QuickTime


Go to http://www.apple.com and click the "Downloads" item on the top menu bar.


You will then have the option of installing QuickTime. This program allows you to watch streaming video on the Internet, as well as play other multimedia files, such as .AVI files.


Click the "Download" button beneath the QuickTime logo.

This action will take you to the main QuickTime download screen, where you will be prompted to enter your email address and continue on by clicking "Free Download Now."


This could be either you are trying to install a 64 bit iTunes onto a 32 bit computer or you dont have the programs needed to run iTunes installed on your computer IE: quick time

or have malware / or virus
scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager

applications you will see whats running
if you see anything you dont need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific

program if you or computer does not require it to run and
some unnecessary programs that could be jamming up your computer

also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you
dont need to be running select end now and users you will see who is using your computer

create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help


click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options in the general tab tick in the box to delete temporary files history cookies and history boxes are all checked
and click delete


if you are still having problems installing iTunes try this solution that I used for a family member having the same error:
go to start>>control panel>>user accounts >>create a new user account that has admin
in the new user account try to install iTunes for all users.

If it installs, log out and go to your usual account, check you have access to iTunes and can use the program, set it to find your music and create the library.
Once your happy its installed and fully working you can delete the spare user account that you made.


hope this helps

I have installed the software on my students' computers under my teacher account. When students log in, they can't run the program. I can't install under their accounts, as they do not have...


I'm not familiar with the specific application, however the most likely problem is that the software requires write access to either or both its program directory or registry hive, most likely the former
You may be able to adjust the program settings to prevent it from trying to write to the program directory.
Alternatively you can grant access to this directory to your students.
This directory will most likely be in something like C:\program files\Encore
To do this
  1. Log in as admin account (presumably your teacher account)
  2. browse to C:\Program Files
  3. Right Click on Encore (or whatever directory you installed into)
  4. Select Properties
  5. Select Security
  6. Enable 'Modify' privilege to a user group that 'students' are a member of..(you may have to add the group and then enable modify)
  7. Login as student and test

If this doesn't work you could try editing the registry hive but this is riskier, so if the above doesn't work then please provide further info including what OS version you are using etc and I'll try to help you further
I hope this helps and good luck! If you have more questions - ask away!
Please take the time to rate this answer
Many Thanks K.

Hi there!
There can be several reasons why you are getting this error message. First, make sure that your user account is an administrator account. If you are sure that your account is an admin, follow this steps:
1. Choose Run from the Start menu. type %Temp% and click OK. delete all files inside the temp directory 3. Click again on run from start menu. Type cmd and hit Enter. 3. Drag iTunesSetup.exe from the Desktop into the C:\\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe window. 4. Add a space and then this text: /extract %TEMP% 5. Press return/enter. This will extract three Windows installer packages into your TEMP directory. 6. Navigate back to your TEMP directory. 7. Launch the AppleSoftwareUpdate Windows Installer Package. Complete the installation. 8. Launch the QuickTime Windows Installer Package. Complete the installation. 9. Launch the iTunes Windows Installer Package. Complete the installation.
Please reply if this will not fix the problem. Cheers!

Installation of iTunes won't finish


Have you tried installing it in Safe Mode?
Restart the computer, pressing F8 as it boots up. Select "Safe Mode" on the menu that comes up. Log in to the Administrator account (shouldn't have a password unless you put one in), and try installing iTunes again.

Using Windows Vista I load Alohabob PC Relocator Ultra Contol


Sounds like you may need to Right-Click the shortcut or executable and click the command Run as administrator. If your account is an admin account, this extra step normally rectifies the issue.

I cannot download exe programs because I do not have admin privledges what do I do? thanks Scott


you have to be in your administrator account. Go to control panel, click user accounts. Log on as Administrator. Delete all your temporary files from your Temp Folder located in C:\Documents and Settings\your My Document Name\Local Settings\Temp Folder. When done deleting your files inside Temp Folder, download exe programs again.

Windows live installation error.


Try right clicking the installation executable and choose Run As Administrator. By default, even an administrator account in Vista doesn't run with administrator privledges unless you elevate the action using user account controls.
