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.

----> Where is setup exe? When i put the disk in, it pops up install. Should I be going somewhere on the computer and typing this? What is compatability and tick?
