would greatly appreciative if I could get some assistance/feedback regarding my current problem. for about the last month, when I try to install anything, I am not able to do so. get a variety of error msgs (i.e. Install Failed, initiate install failure, cannot access Users/Public/Desktop, etc). no clue why I'm having this annoyance, def have not tinkered with any system settings/deleted anything important/etc. if so it was unintentional. I use IObit Advanced System Care quite frequently to keep my PC running smoothly, maybe that is to blame? usually just run the recommended quick scan settings. recently upgraded to ASC 6 Beta 1.1, that might have been the last program I was able to successfully install.

running Windows 7 (64-bit) Home Premium Ed
on a fairly new HP Pavilion Elite (HPE-410f).

if someone is willing to offer some guidance as to how I can resolve this problem, I'd be willing to offer $ compensation. not under warranty w/ HP & don't want to pay someone in Pakistan $100 for 30 mins of them reading from a prompt & not getting anything accomplished. let me know if you can help, and if you need any additional details on my part. thank you so much!

This may sound dumb but have tried running installers by Right Click>Run as administrator?

Could be a rogue process that's preventing Installation. Try Clean Startup, and then attempt to re-install a programme that you know has failed. If it works then use the elimination procedure to find out which is to blame...
