    Hello PamelaFox14,
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    It sounds like you need to log in as the administrator to update the iTunes application properly.
    Take a look at this article named:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1926
    This section in particular:
    1. Make sure you have administrator account access
    To install iTunes or QuickTime software, you need to be logged in as an administrator on the computer. If you're not sure if you have administrator account access, you may find this Microsoft article helpful:

  • TS3212 I am unable to install itunes because "the installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory"

    I am the administrator but it doesn't recognize it
    How do I get around this?

    B Noir --
    I can't tell you how much I appreciate your taking the time to help me with this problem.  I'm doing a healing technician training class at my church, and have most of my study material on my ipod.  It cashed this weekend which hindered my preparation for my class tomorrow night.  I went to the local "Apple Store" late last night and they could get me up and running.   They suggested that I call the APL CARD line which I did today, but they gave me a nice run around seccession, and did nothing.  Then I was lead to "Google" my question, which eventually lead me to the "Apple" site.  Praise the LORD for your help and may you be richly blessed with multiplied blessings in all that you put your hands to do.  May you receive a great harvest.  As far as I'm concerned you were used by the LORD, and are the real genius!!!
    Thanks

  • TS3212 Cannot install iTunes to my PC running Windows Vista. Message "The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory....Log on as administrator." I am logged on as administrator. I am attempting to install from download by right-clicki

    I've had iTunes on my PC forever. Because recent updates have aborted with the message:"The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory... Log on as administrator," I am now attempting to download a fresh copy from the Apple website. Same message! I am logged on as administrator. I can download, then attempt to run by right-clicking on the installer and selecting, "Run as administrator" but that gets me only to the same point (and message) as attempting to install directly from the internet. I've never seen this message with any other download. What gives?

    What's the precise name of the directory being mentioned? (Give the full file path, please.)

  • Adobe Error 1303.  The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory:

    Adobe Error 1303.  The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: C:\Programs Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0 when trying to update Adobe Reader 10.01 on a Windows 7, 64-bit machine.  What I've found is that once I allow Adobe Updater to download updates, the 1.0 folder is created under ARM.  As long as I don't start the update, I can access this folder.  Once the update starts, if I try to access this folder I get an access denied message and the install fails with the Error 1303 message.  I've tried making myself the Owner of the folder, tried running KB947821, have disabled the Firewall and shut off the UAC, none of which works.  My guess is that there is a problem with the update itself changing the security.
    Anyone have any other ideas beyond waiting for the next update, that will hopefully work better than this one?
    thanks!

    That one could be disk/file damage, b.
    Try running a chkdsk over your C drive. There's instructions and a guided help in the following Microsoft document:
    Does the chkdsk find/repair any damage? If so, restart the PC and try another iTunes install. Does it go through properly this time?

    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?

  • The Installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory c:\programData\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu\Programs\iTunes

    I have been trying to install the latest version of iTunes for over a week and this is the error message I keep getting.  I have done everything I can think of to fix the problem - unistalled iTunes, Quicktime, etc.  I have changed my administrator settings to give myself (the administrator) full access and permission and logged in as the administrator.  I am running Windows Vista.  I am so frustrated after days of trying to make this work!  Any suggestions or help would be very appreciated!

  • Error 1303. The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat. The installation cannot continue. Log on as an administrator or contact your system administrator.

    This is a desktop computer with Windows 8. Any help is appreciated.

    Well, did you log in as the administrator. Win 8.1 may also have an disabled Administrator account like Win 7 that you may have to activate, but in most cases it is not necessary. You should disable anti-virus during the install. From you login (as long as you are an administrator) you may be able to right click on the install file and say run as administrator.
