Sound card problem under Freedom III

I recently have a strange problem. I just got my computer repaired, and Windows XP Freedom III version installed on it. When I tried to install the Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card, I receive an error message about "the system database access denied by the administrator". I downloaded the latest drivers from the Creative website, and tried to install that one instead, but the same thing happened. Needless to say that there is absolutely no sound except the PC speaker.

The funny thing is, the sound was working flawlessly before I tried to install the Sound Blaster X-Fi, so the sound card is working fine, just something doesn't work out for this Freedom III version.

Please, anyone knows how to fix this problem, and get the sound card to work once again?

Hello Reactor...

In all probability, the soundcard drivers are not installing as you are not running a genuine version of Windows XP. As it is against our terms of use to assist with non-genuine software installations, I'm closing this topic.
