administrator's privileges

Can anyone tell me how to install a program which gives me
an error message, "Access denied. Please logon with
administrator privileges and try again" I have Windows XP
running and have a user account which is a computer
administrator account. There is also another user on the
computer with the same type of account. I have tried to
install the program which is a game while in safe mode
under the default administrator account with the same
results.

Is the computer part of a network? If so, you might have domain and/or
organizational 'group policies' installed on the workstation. If so, these
policies are likely overriding your local user policies, including the
administrator. These policies are typically a safeguard put in place by
network administrators.

Best regards,

Todd

Thanks for replying Todd.
I have a home network setup. Can you tell me how to change
the settings for these policies that you mentioned? I only
seem to have this problem when trying to install any "Lord
of the Rings" programs. The Return of the King game as
well as the Activity Studio have both given me the same
error message.
