    try the download as "the administrator", and not as an account with administrationpriveledges ...by the way, I noticed you have xp home...you can only be the administrator in safe mode in x[p home

    one more thing...just because you are the only account does not mean you gave the account priveledges, so just make sure by going to accounts and looking to see if the account actually has priveledges
