Lightbulb I need help installing a program

I put the disc in... and the screen comes up where I have to click on "Install" to install the game. I click on it, and then it freezes. Not the whole computer, just the installing program thing. This happens everytime...

Also, on the box, it says, "Windows XP/2000 users note: Hunting Unlimited 3 must be installed from a user account with administrater priviliges."

I have Windows XP, so what does that mean?

when you make acounts on XP you select to give the acount administrative priviliges. If you only have one acount on XP then it has administrative priviliges. if you have more that one go into the start menu and click on the pic at the top and it will bring up the acount info.

it's not a person that has administrative priviliges, it's an acount that does

Does your Mum have an account on the PC other than that which you use?

If you go into start menu and click on your display pic and then click home, you can see if your acount has administrative priviliges.

if it doesn't click on your acount then go chnage acount type. then make it and administrative acount

Ask her if you can get on her account to install it.

Hmmm... is that the only other account on there?

Very odd...
