OS: Win XP Home Ed.

I am running Windows XP - Home Edition - Google Chrome Browser - I am an Administrator - It is a home use machine - I am the sole user.
I download programs such as IE 8 and Adobe reader 8. They download O.K. but when it comes to "run", the message comes up - "insufficient permissions". I have in the recent past downloaded and run a few programs with no trouble. I probably made some stupid inadvertent mistake, but I don't know what. I am a novice so I would please ask for step-by-step guidance to rectify this problem. I suppose I could reload Windows XP BUT I do not have a disc, and I am a pensioner who lives in a mission which is pretty isolated. If anyone has a spare Window XP disc, I would be happy to get it. Hoping you will be the bringer of good tidings. Thanks - Ken Miles
