Hey am using windows xp and I am trying to do some of the tutorials and download some of the anti spyware malware programs from this site i can get these programs on to my desktop but when i try to install them i get an error or instalation wizard error anything obvious that i am doing wrong. I am not a novice with computers but not an expert, I have installed and uninstalled many programs and have battled may internet infection foes but i have never come across this problem before.

any ideas?

I tried all the software from the resources tab on this site from malware and spy ware section of that tab and i tried a tutorial on telling whether or not i have been hacked i can download the software but i cannot open them, actually ad aware got to the installation wizard and then it said acess denied

examples are:


rogue scan error said:
"Unable to execute in the tempory directory Setup Aborted"
"Error 5: Access Denied"

Ad-Aware error said"
"Installation Wizard"
Access is Denied"
