Vista home
re logged in as admin
UAC turned off
Registry permissions set to allow

then whatever you try to install gets to about 95% then can't access registry file etc and uninstalls its self

spyware or corrupt registry.

try system restore or safe mode.

  Seth Haniel 14:56 19 May 09

no spyware
tried safe mode to no avail
been happening longer than the last system restore

  Bob The Blob 16:21 19 May 09

reinstall vista then

as Bob The Blob says reformat all drives and have a clean install.

Or run the installer as Administrator. I wouldn't recommend running with UAC off by default, it provides more protection than just popping up annoying dialogue boxes - Protected Mode in IE is disabled for a start. click here

'run the installer as Administrator' Been down that path -
Only ran with UAC off to rule out that possibility

if you are having these problems
net localgroup Administrators Local Service /ADD
net localgroup Administrators Network Service /ADD

Restart your computer and bam! everything should work normally ^^
