    Facing the error “Access is denied” while installing the programs in Windows Vista

    When I try to install any program in Windows Vista System it gives me the error “Access is denied”. There is no problem with programs. I scanned all programs and could not find the virus. I need to install them. What might be the problem? Please, help me!

    hi dere, this problem is just because of your access rights.This usually happens when a user not have sufficient rights to make changes or install a program. this happens mostly in schools and colleges. to resolve this problem: make sure that you are running as administrator on the OS. if yes then right click on the program and click on RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. hope this will help....

    Dear friend,

    This problem might be caused by:
    1. Norton Antivirus program. So make sure that you have disabled the antivirus program before installing any other program. Or you can make exception in the antivirus for the program files, you are going to install.
    Or
    2. You do not have permissions to access these files. Log onto the administrator account of your Windows. Right click on the installer file, and then properties. Go to the security tab. Select your username and set full permissions to the file.

    Thanks!
