Setup will only run in Adminstrator mode. Setup is aborting.
 
I am getting that error code when installing the Crysis Hotfix drivers. How do I set that up? I have two accounts on my computer and I am the administrator as far as I know. Any ideas?

xp or vista?

Try the other account, or log in as "Administrator" when using XP.

Try running it as Administrator through the context menue, when using Vista.

reinstall the basic vga driver and reboot. Or manually install the ATI drivers from the driver manager.

Doesn't work.
It was doing this with 7.11. I had to uninstall the drivers and control center, reboot, then run the ATI uninstall utility, then reboot again and it would work afterward.

Good God! I've had a really bad virus/bug that actually forced me to format after losing everything on it...actually made a thread on it. It was infected so badly that the techie at Cogeco had to call me and ask WTF was going on? lol. It was trying to get into their network/hub and was using up near 99% of my bandwidth and had taken "administrator" rights. Ive had other trojans/malware but this one was brutal.

Anyways, I thought this virus somehow came back to haunt me after a reformat and hours of installing softare/benchmarking.

I'll uninstall the drivers and see what happens.
