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?

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