suggestions?

Download the latest HP software from
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers
and then right-click on the installation file you downloaded
and select "Run as administrator".

Even though you may be an Administrator, you normally operate with regular
user powers. You will still need to elevate your powers when required.
This is normally done by right-clicking on the installation .exe file, and
selecting "Run as Administrator".
