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 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!

I have a problem with wen ituner it on it shouw up it say enter curten pasword


I believe you are referring to the Itunes account login. This is required to buy and play music and videos in Itunes. There was an account set up with Itunes when it was installed on your PC. It would appear that it has either not been set up yet or you have forgotten your login information. To resolve this issue you must do one of two things. The first one is, if you have not set up an account Itunes gives you the option to set up a new account. If you have just forgotten your Itunes login information there is the option to recover your username and password. Hope this helps.

When my daughter brings up her itunes account the page comes up but just for a moment then the screen turns grey.


Try to see first if you have the latest iTunes installed on your computer. If you already have it installed, try to click Store in the left side of iTunes and login in again to your daughter's iTunes account and see if iTunes will turn grey again. If you can login to your daughter's iTunes account and she can see her transactions, account profile, etc., then the account is active and the reason for the grey out screen is because of your iTunes version. If you cannot login, you can try to access the link below to have your account password reset to be able to access it.

If it says that you're account has been disabled and you cannot reset your password, your only option is to call Apple and ask them to be able to access your account again.

I recommend that you update Windows first before trying to install iTunes again.

If after the update the same error still occurs, create a new admin account on your computer. To do that:
  1. Go to Control Panel> User Accounts>
  2. Select "Create a new account
  3. Type whatever name you want for the account
  4. Make sure that the account type you select is Computer Administrator

Log on to that new account and install iTunes from there.

When I try installing Itunes half way through installing a pop up comes up saying- "Could not access network location %APPDATA%\." Can u help me fix this.


Please take note that the following steps is in assumption that you are using a Windows operating system.) As I have found out in the iTunes support in apple.com, this symptom may be caused by anti-spyware software preventing iTunes from installing correctly. One such application is SpyCatcher. Before installing iTunes, temporarily remove this software to allow the iTunes installer to complete.

If you are still having trouble installing iTunes for Windows, follow the troubleshooting suggestions described in this article.

General installation troubleshooting Important: iTunes installation is successful a majority of the time after completing these troubleshooting procedures. If one step does not resolve your issue proceed to the next.

  1. Choose Start > My Computer (or double-click My Computer on the Desktop).
  2. In My Computer or Computer, open the "C:" drive.
  3. Open Documents and Settings.
  4. Double-click the folder titled with your username.
  5. If you see a Local Settings folder, skip to step 10. If you don't see a Local Settings folder, proceed to the next step.
  6. Choose Tools > Folder Options.
  7. Click the View tab.
  8. Select the option to "Show hidden files and folders."
  9. Click OK.
  10. Double-click Local Settings.
  11. Right-click on the Temp folder and choose Delete.
