With Vista it's a good idea to right click on the installer and select "Run as administrator".

I've installed the latest version of iTunes on several computers without any problems.
Google Earth, OTOH, fought me tooth and nail before I got it installed - not a real pleasant experience. It took a lot of googling to get it to work correctly!
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Could it have been corrupted during the download? If you're in dialup, don't do any other Internet things while downloading a large program or it could end up mangled.

What is this Internet you speak of?
