Can't launch installation of progs. from PC Advisor DVD

Likes # 0

I have a 'new' Dell Vostro 1510 running XP Pro SP3, and whenever I insert a PCA DVD and click 'Click here to install for Windows', I get an Adobe Reader box up that states "This file is set to be launched by this PDF file. This is currently disallowed by your System Administrator". Although logged on as Administrator, I cannot find where to correct this. Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

Download and Install the latest version from here enter link description here untick the option for McAfee Free Security Scan. When installing there will be an option to Get Automatic Updates (or words to that effect) I would suggest you untick that option. If you require an updated version you can always obtain it yourself from the Adobe site.

Also untick the Google Chrome option to install.
