Cannot install as Administrator

I am the administrator of a new laptop running windows 7 and this laptop will not let me install a software package. It states that I need to have administrator privileges. I have tried to set compatibility mode and choose run as administrator. All are greyed out. This is the first time that I have this occur and very puzzling. I can right click on the installer and run as administrator is not an option either. Very puzzling as to why I cannot install. I am the administrator of the domain also, which should not make any difference.
Why would one program not allow me to install it?
