HT1926 trying to download itunes 10.6 on w7 64-bit, getting error msg: this installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: C:\program data\microsoft\windows\start menu\programs ITunes.  Log on as administrator.  (I already am!)

Can't install latest itunes. error msg: "This installer has insufficient priviliges to access this directory:  C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu\Programs\ITunes. Log on as administrator or contact your system administrator."  I am logged on as administrator and have been since i've owned this laptop.  Any suggestions?

That one's consistent with disk/file damage. The first thing I'd try with that is running a disk check (chkdsk) over your C drive.
XP instructions in the following document: How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP
Vista instructions in the following document: Check your hard disk for errors
Windows 7 instructions in the following document: How to use CHKDSK (Check Disk)
Select both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, or use chkdsk /r (depending on which way you decide to go about doing this). You'll almost certainly have to schedule the chkdsk to run on startup. The scan should take quite a while ... if it quits after a few minutes or seconds, something's interfering with the scan.
Does the chkdsk find/repair any damage? If so, can you get an install to go through properly afterwards?
