Move those installers somewhere outside your Downloads folder (e.g. your desktop) and run them from there. If that works, then there's a problem with the permissions on your Downloads folder. If that doesn't work, then... Hm.

Everything sounds like your account is running under restricted permissions.

 

Is this your machine, or is it another family member's computer that gave you limited account?  It sounds strange that this would be your machine and you're not an administrator.

 

Check under control panel => user accounts to see what level user you are listed as.

Why don't I ever think of these things?

Alright I will see if that works.

Yes, it is my machine. I have had it for 2 years. I have checked the applications, my settings, and my user account is at admin. The permissions for each application is admin also. Sorry it has taken me awhile to answer, I have been busy. When I get the time I will check tonight. Thank you though! =)

I'm not sure what that is. So probably not. How do I enable it?

What about antivirus? If you have antivirus, then disable it and install it, then re-enable. Or, what about a proxy? If you have a proxy, is it a cheap proxy? Did you buy it or did you download a free one? If you bought it, I would recommend you disable it and then retry the install. If you didn't buy it, I would recommend you disable it and delete it and then retry the install.

Already checked my antivirus, wasn't the problem. And no, I do not have a proxy.

I am sorry! Haha I didn't see at first. And I actually already tried those things and they didn't seem to work either. This sounds sketchy I know, but I have tried all I possibly could or know to do. I appreciate the help. I might just system restore. Very odd.

Are you connected via Ethernet cable or wifi? If wifi, is it your wifi? (you may already have disclosed this, if so my apologies)
