  2. Do you have Local Admin on that computer?
  3. Once i had a similar problem like you have now, the windows installer was actually corrupt. I downloaded a new one i found on google and things got resolved. Then again it seems to me that you have permission problems here

    I actually ended up calling microsoft and paying them $99 for remote repair. they downloaded a program (freeware no less!) that analyzed and repaired my windows. (tweaking.com)
