Why you post in KPT ? Otherwise my post count will increase :bsmilie:
Are you using private PC or office ? There is something in the registry that can be set to prevent application installation, but this is usually done by IT admins in large corporate office with hundreds of terminals

From http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...icies-to/b5350e90-fe4b-4544-8549-20c6a7befb51

Is the computer on a domain?

· Is the issue isolated to only this software or you get the same error message with other software’s as well?

Try the steps below and check if it helps.

Step 1:

Run the software setup file as an administrator and check if it helps.

a. Right click on the setup file of the software that you are trying to install.

b. Select “Run as administrator”.

Step 2:

Temporarily disable the antivirus software running on the computer and check if you are able to install the software.

Disable antivirus software

Warning:
Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

Step 3:

a. Click Start, type "Local Security Policy" (without quotes) and press enter.

b. Click on Software Restriction Policies.

c. In the right pane, double click on the "enforcement".

d. Select “All users except local administrators”.

e. Click Ok and restart the computer and check if the issue is fixed.

Thanks tried all that and XP doesn't seem to have such a thing as "Local Security Policy".
There is.
If you are using Windows XP Professional, it's under Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy

Although this would be unlikely... Can it be antivirus?

Another way I could think of will be booting into safe mode and try to install.

• Was it a RM$10 pirated adobe premiere elements from JB Holiday Plaza?

• The premiere elements too simple for you, adobe wants you to use the more expensive complicated version

• adobe hacked and you cannot install with serial key
