Windows 7 Driver Problems.

Hi all,

I am having problems with my PC at the moment. I cannot install drivers on my computer, when I try it says "Access Denied". I have Admin rights on my account. Any help is very much appreciated as it is a very annoying problem.

Can you be a bit more specfic?
What kind of computer, Manufacturer, Model Name Model Number, any other identifying tags?
What is your source for "the drivers" and which drivers are you having trouble with specifically?

You can

a. right click on the .exe file and choose "Run as administrator" and / or
b. install Take Ownership

Windows 7 is highly paranoid. It's a quality meant for safety, but it can be very annoying. I'd say, we have all had problems with this.
