    Well first off are u a member of the admin group? Generally you need to be an admin of have admin rights to install a program.
     
  3. Well I'm building the computer for a friend, so yeah I do.. what do I have to do to get this message to go away and stay away?

    Thanks again :-D

    Try logging on as Administrator and see if you can install it from there. If that doesn't work try installing it from Safe Mode.
