  • Hi,

     

    How about disabling UAC and your antivirus for testing? You can enable them later. If possible, please load standalone iTunes package, right click the package and run as administrator.

     

    If the issue persists, you can try the following method to reset the permission for administrator.

     

    Reset permission

    -----------------------------

    a. Please download the subinacl.msi file from the following link and save the installation patch onto the Desktop:

     

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e8ba3e56-d8fe-4a91-93cf-ed6985e3927b&displaylang=en#AffinityDownloads

     

    b. Run the package and select the C:\Windows\System32 folder as the Destination Folder during the installation. Later we will use this tool to reset the permission settings on the current machine.

    c. Create a new notepad, then copy the following commands and then paste them into the opened Notepad window:

     

    @echo off

     

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f

    subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f

    subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f

     

    @Echo =========================

    @Echo Finished.

    @Echo =========================

    @pause

     

    d. After that, save the file as "reset.bat". Right click the reset.bat and then choose "Run as administrator."

     

    Best Regards,

    Niki
