PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY:
I have a problem with my Acer Aspire 7741 dual-core, 64 bit laptop computer. I am running Windows 7 HOME PREMIUM as my operating system.
Problem: In "normal" windows mode, I cannot install any program, not even a portable program, whether it is an "exe", or a "com", without receiving this little highly annoying message ▬
"a required privilege is not held by the client" (error 0x80070522)
Although, if I am in SAFEMODE, I can install, repeat CAN install any program WITHOUT the error note. Period.
FYI, I have scoured the internet, following suggestions like turning off account control in the control panel, setting "enable lua" to zero in the registry, giving "permission" to the c:\ Root, running Malwarebytes, etc., performing a clean boot - all of which I had to install and run in Safemode, of course, but to no avail.
Thank you in advance for your help. This problem is driving me BONKERS.
