When clicking install, the game will not install.

I just bought a computer that has windows 7 on it. When trying to install a game, it asks ' do you want to allow this program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?' I click yes, and nothing happens. I do not know what to do, and cannot find anything on the internet. Please help.

  1. hey im not overly sure if this is your problem but check processes. after an update any thing i installed would sit there as a process doing nothing. is this computer like brand new or refurbished?
  2. turn uac off

    its useless it dosnt stop viruses and stops programs and things working as long as you have an antivirus its fine

    right click on the setup.exe file on the dvd and compatablity and tick, run as administrator click on apply then double click the file (left click) to run it

    it should run fine but turn uac off (user account controll)

    ---> Its brand new. We've had it about a month, but i've never tried to install my old games until now.
