I have tried various methods of installation, including turning my anti-virus and firewall off, instead of using the supplied installation mode. I have run CCleaner in advance, cleaned my registry, and even defragmented my hard drive. I have tried deleting the Yahoo! Messenger folder from my programs directory, as well as removing any other Yahoo! related items on my computer. I have gone to the Adobe website and installed the latest version of the Flash player. I have even tried installing it while in Safe Mode.
I have also tried voodoo tactics such as trying to hold my mouth in the proper position, making a ward-evil sign, and even jumped up and down and spun around 3 times while singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
However i noticed one thing....when i download from a sub-installer that yahoo provides at its messenger website, the complete download of messenger does take place, however, during installation, it stops at 57%, and displays the message: INSTALL UNSUCCESSFUL.
But when i tried installing from a 15 MB direct installer, the installation stopped at 94% and i got the following error:
I was installing it from an administrator account already. I also created a new administrator account and ran the installer from that account, but i got the same error again as listed above in the pic.
Any idea as to why is the installer saying that i don't have administrative privileges although i am already using an administrator account? I don't encounter such error while downloading any other application/software.
Plz help me!!
