    I am signed in as the Administrator of my computer, however, the system will not allow me to install my antivirus. It gives me an error message saying that I need admin. privileges to install.

    I did have some viruses but fixed them, now I can't install.

    Please help.

    Thanks!!!:(

    Try tapping F8 as you push power button until you get safe mode option. Go into safe mode and try install.
