Insufficient priviledges- can't install application - yet I'm the only person who uses the computer

I'm trying to install Acrobat 6 on a Windows XP Pro system. Half way throught the installation process an Error 1303 dialog pops up stating that the "documents and settings folder/users can not be accessed due to insufficient priviledges. Please log on as administrator or see your systems adiministrator". I am logged onto the machine as the administrator (since it is the only account) and I've checked to make sure that the account has full admin priviledges. What do I need to do?

Hi mrdcon,

Does it happen if you install any software going to administrator login or just adobe

Do you have any other adobe version or this is the first install of adobe

Try to take ownership using these to see if it would help

Acrobat 6 is the only application that this error occurs. I installed Acrobat 5 without any problems.
