i am the administrator BUT

  losmil 19:30 26 Aug 2010

I have downloaded 3 software programmes and in each case they require me to be the administrator (which I am, the sole administrator) but they will not allow me to download. How do i tell them that I am the administrator?

Try right-clicking on the downloaded exe file and choose the "run as administrator" option.

running xp sp3, tried re instal, gave my admin account a password and tried again, this time response was "unable to execute file in the temporary directory, set up is aborted, error 5 , access is denied"
am stumped!
googled the response but did not seem to relate to my problem
