Failed Software Installations

I am not able to install any programs onto my computer.

The last program i tried to install was the software for telstra bigpond wireless broadband internet.

The install failed and said "error writing to file: C:\Program\Files\Telstra\Bigpond Wireless Broadband 2.0\register.exe. Verify that you have access to that directory."

I get the issue when installing any sofware. I have tried to install different anti virus software as well and get the same issue.

I am logged in as administrator when i am installing but the the software tells me to verify that i have access to the directory.

Do i have a virus or what else could it be and how can i rectify this issue.
