    anyway.. to MY problem.. when I download files from places like filefront.. I dl the file and everything goes okay there.. then when I go to install the file.. it always installs it but then goes back and says.. the program wasn't installed with the right settings.. and then it gives me 2 options to reinstall or cancel. I think it has something to do with the admin probems..I tried to dl the bf2142 demo on my computer.. all of that happened.. and then when I tried to save it to a specific location before the transfer it said I needed admin priviledges even though I am an admin..

    Secondly.. even after I click the " reinstall with recommended settings " it still has issues in the end where I can't even run it.. like the bf2142 demo.. I dled it installed it.. it told me to reinstall with recommended settings.. so I did.. and then in the end.. the button to launch the game says that it's missing and asked me to browse where the file was.. and I couldn't even find the game through the properties tab.. which was C:\Program Files\EA

    Of course.. this didn't happen with EVERYTHING I tried to download thank god..

    HELP

    Try turning off 'User Account control' in the User Accounts control panel.

    thanks, I think it should've done the trick.. but one more thing I forgot to mention was that.. when I tried to use winzip.. and extract a file into where I wanted to go to.. it would say access denied.. probably another user thing.. and then.. sometimes during installations.. the bar would just sit there for a couple of seconds.. about 5 or so.. and then just zip up and finish the installation in almost no time.. and then when I try to run it the file hasn't even been installed.. when I do manage to install the game.. say by reinstallating using a different mirror.. I run it.. and then it'd say the game has experienced an error and stopped working.. so I'd reinstall the file.. same result.. restart my computer.. same result
