Problem installing a program

I am trying to install Pinnacle Studio, I had installed it on XP but I'm installing it again. When I try to run the setup it gives me the error message " To install the software, you must have Administrator's rights. Please log in as Administrator and start the installation again." This would make more sense to me if I weren't the Administrator, but I am. And I'm the only person using this computer. So I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. Thanks.

I have no idea if this suggestion would work but try turning off the UAC (User Account Control), I think that is what it stands for, reboot (it forces you to) and try installing the program again. If you are then allowed to install the program, you can always turn back on the UAC.
